Personality: A bold, complex rosé with subtlety and nuance. The dry-farmed Petite Sirah vines struggled with the drought in 2021 and produced smaller than usual berries with higher skin-to-pulp ratio causing the wine to shown deeper purple hues than one would usually expect from a Rosé. Its seriously deep color is matched with a structure that’s uncommon to the genre which makes this wine a refreshing sipper when chilled, but also is a formidable food wine, not to slink away from pairing with the most stoggy cuisine.

Vineyard: L. Venturi Vineyards outside Calpella, Mendocino County, CA. Organically and dry-farmed for over 20 years. Well-drained Pinole gravelly loam soils with a mixture of sandstone, shale, and quartz.

Making of: Harvested and whole cluster pressed, slowly (early September through late December) fermented by ambient yeats in a stainless steel tank and kept on its fermentation lees up until bottling in spring. It saw SO2 only before pressing (total 13ppm), bottled without fining or filtration.
