I was so excited about making this rosé! I selected different blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot that were expressing red berry flavors and nice acidity during the end of the season for this wine. The pressed lots were fermented in stainless steel drums and once-used barrels. The fermentation went very slowly and the used oak allowed for the development of a beautiful creamy texture in the wines. Combined with fruity aromas and nice acidity, the result is gorgeous. Aromas of strawberry jam, honeydew melon, violet flowers, and ripe apricot are followed by a silky palate and crispy flavor of juicy watermelon, vanilla bean, and candy. - Laura Diaz Munoz, Winemaker
