2017 Rose of Cabernet Franc
From the Goddess Clone of Cabernet Franc, which originated on our Leopoldina Vineyard, we present a perfect wine of the pink persuasion. Compelling, ethereal aromatics of watermelon, wet stone and guava seduce the nose. Lifted alpine strawberries highlight the stunning fruit purity on the palate, as sublime freshness and crisp texture provide beautiful balance for this nectar of summer.
"This is a rosé that encapsulates the sparkle of summertime, evocative of the waning rays of summer sun that descended upon our vineyards on Labor Day Weekend 2017 when we harvested the partial-veraison Cabernet Franc for this bottling. As you enjoy this wine and experience the purity of fruit flavor that is so crisp and so clean, let yourself feel coaxed back to warmer days." -Peter Heitz, Winemaker
