Winemaker Notes

This is our lightest Rosé to date – pale pink in color. White raspberry and citrus notes lead into fresh cucumber water with a touch of mint. Low alcohol means this is a “porch pounder,” especially on hot days at the pool or beach. Expect tartrates to form on the cork and bottle. Age at cellar temperature to avoid tartrates buildup. Serve chilled at 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: Fresh and delicate wines are often the most difficult to produce; the wines generally turn out light and insipid. The 2017 Kale Rosé from the Kick Ranch Vineyard is the exception to the rule. TASTING NOTES: This wine is delicate, beautiful, and decidedly rewarding. Its aromas and flavors of fresh red fruits and tart nectarine should pair it well with pristine and unadorned salmon sashimi. (Tasted: July 23, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

In 2008, Kale and his wife Ranko set out to create Rhône inspired wines from extraordinary vineyards in Northern California under their own label, Kale Wines. Specializing in small production, handcrafted wines, Kale utilizes new technologies as well as ancient techniques to express the unique vineyards' most delicious characteristics. Kale Anderson, Winemaker

Kale Anderson grew up in Sonoma County, where he was exposed to the wine industry by a community that encouraged creativity, love for the outdoors, and stewardship of the land.

He attended the University of California, Davis intending to pursue medicine, like his father had, but instead found himself drawn to Davis’ Plant Biology program. As an undergraduate Kale researched DNA repair in plants. He spent winters in Tahoe, and tried his hand at commercial fishing in Alaska during the summertime.

Feeling scientifically inspired but creatively unfulfilled, Kale transitioned into an interdisciplinary major in Nature and Culture. While changing his major, he stumbled upon an introductory course in Viticulture and Enology. It immediately struck him to be the most fascinating blend of nature and culture that he had experienced to date. This discovery set him on a focused trajectory toward winemaking.

In 2001, Kale took his first harvest internship at J Winery, Russian River. After graduating BS Viticulture and Enology, he worked at Colgin Cellars, Terra Valentine Winery, Cliff Lede Vineyards in Stags Leap District and is currently Director of Winemaking for Pahlmeyer.

Rosé Wine

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
