2019 Sparkling Rosé

Notes of hibiscus flower, jasmine tea, watermelon, rose petal and a touch of strawberry make this rosé my new go-to bubbly. #YOLO

Grenache and Counoise are common blend buddies for Rosé in the Provençe region of France. Inspired by what the French do with their rosé, I started adding Counoise to the blend about three years ago,and I continue to learn more about blending with the variety every year. Counoise is savory and smells like oolong tea as it ferments. I love it as an accompaniment to the Grenache, which on its own can be a bit simple and candy-flavored. I find as the years progress that I keep adding a bit more Counoise, as I think it makes the Sparkling Rosé taste a little more sophisticated.

NV Sparkling Zinfandel
Lake County
This elegant sparkling Zinfandel saw two patient years of barrel aging. Aromas of blackberry, sarsaparilla and sage lead the pack, followed by charming flavors of blueberry, strawberry rhubarb pie and rose petal with a cranberry finish.
2018 Sparkling Blanc De Noir
I am thrilled that this wine finally came to fruition, albeit bittersweet that my dad never got to taste it. My dad and I shared a passion for Champagne and sparkling wine and a sparkling wine made from the grapes we grew is extra special.
