Our favorite rosé we’ve ever made – this ‘kitten’ comes from the Santo Giordano vineyard of southern Carneros. We moved hard on this beautiful vineyard of sangiovese, where cold winds and fog ensure that the fruit is lean and lovely. Where the kitten used to be made from syrah, it is now 100% sangiovese. We couldn’t be happier with the result.
This is a gorgeous summer sipper, with flavors of wild strawberry and jasmine aromas. It is dry, but dangerously drinkable. 2018 was a very cold year with a long hang time before harvest. This gave the wine wonderfully rich layers of red fruit flavors while exemplifying the beautifully bright capability of the sangiovese grape. This kitten is going to be everyone’s favorite!
