The fruit looked beautiful (love that deep blue color), clean, and evenly ripened - we pick early for Rosato to achieve the desired low alcohol, delicacy, and crispness. Unfortunately, there was only 1/2 ton again this year. We had hoped for a bit more. You might let us know if you want to claim some of the +/- 30 cases of 2017 Rosato that will be released early next year.
Next up, possibly as early as next week, is harvesting Sangiovese for red wine.
Oh, and we're releasing the 2014 Sangiovese.
Busy times in Napa Valley.
