Rose & Thistle Rosé 2014

2014 was a truly outstanding year for grapes in the Napa Valley. Our rosé was made from a combination of free-run juice and saignee of cabernet sauvignon from a variety of lots spread across the valley – from 7 different vineyards – with varying character. We have some coming from valley floor vineyards in the Oakville and Rutherford AVAs to mountain vineyards like Mt Veeder, Atlas Peak and Pritchard Hill. We added a touch of rosé of Pinot Noir from the Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard to make up the final blend and to add a floral note. The juice was fermented cold in stainless steel to bring out subtle flavors and freshness. Then it was racked into neutral French oak barrels until bottling to add texture.
