2017 Avril Taylor
Napa Valley

The Wine
While some rose wines have a watery, thin profile, our 2017 Rose features a savory character and a faint texture that bestows an incredible, lasting experience on the palate. This is a savory, dry rose with generous acidity and a clean finish. Notes of sour cherry, pomegranate, and tart raspberry are immediately apparent. Our 2017 Rose will pair with a wide range of foods and should be a great poolside companion! We produced 61 cases of this vintage, and we’re very excited to share this with you!

The Vintage
The winter of 2016-2017 provided significant rainfall that set the stage for the 2017 growing season. Healthy aquifers assisted in producing vigorous canopies as the vines cruised through the spring and summer. Several heat spikes pushed the vintage forward to develop grapes with optimal maturity. Harvest commenced at a comfortable pace in mid September.
