2014 Ideology Estate Rosé Oak Knoll Napa Valley California

Winemaking - Our unique estate vineyard is located in the Oak Knoll District of
Napa Valley. It is bordered on the north by Dry Creek, which has left its legacy by
distributing sand and gravelly soil throughout the vineyard. These soils translate
into ideal growing conditions for the fruit, yielding deep, concentrated and
intense flavors in the wine. Hand harvested at dawn, the grapes were sorted and de-stemmed and put into tank for a few days to allow for skin contact. Then, using the Saignée (French from bleeding) method, the pink juice from the must (freshly pressed juice) is
fermented in stainless steel, and undergoes partial malolactic fermentation.

Tasting – Picture the color of a pink sky at sunset …Beautiful bright aromas of strawberries and stone fruit, with subtle hints of spice. A sip simply must be taken..

Palate - Beautiful, bright hard-candy nose with aromas of strawberries and stone fruit.  Our Rosé of Cab is balanced, mouth filling, rich with juicy red berry fruit, and finishes with a kiss of ripe peach. This charming wine is very approachable, extremely food friendly and refreshing. The perfect wine for backyard entertaining on a hot day!
