Winemaker's Notes:

Very much like the Tinto, the Rosado champions the greatness of SLO County's warm and cool climates. This fact might imply that this wine is a saignée of the grapes used in the Tinto. That is absolutely not the case. These Garnacha (Grenache), Monastrell (Mourvèdre), and Syrah blocks were all farmed with more shade on the fruit, and were picked at lower brix levels, specifically to make this Rosado. The lower sunlight on the clusters pumps up the bright fruit flavors and helps to preserve acidity. The color was carefully chosen to show the fresh yet rich flavors of this fabulous rosé.

Tasting Notes from Winemaker Christian Roguenant:
"To me, a true rosé is one that was grown, picked, and fermented for the sole purpose of making a rosé. Aromas and flavors of strawberry, cherry, bananas, rose petals are all very bright. This wine tastes exactly as it smells."
