Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Dry Rosé is a tribute to the Simi family’s matriarch, Isabelle, who had a passion for growing roses. The color is lit from within, a vivid coral pink. On the nose, find ripe strawberry, watermelon, tangerine, and a hint of white flower. These enticing aromas set the stage for the palate of fresh strawberry, red cherry, citrus, and melon. This Rosé is forward and focused with bright acidity, a nice body and structure, and a lengthy finish.
Vineyard Notes
Mostly sourced from Alexander Valley (54%), our Dry Rosé primarily comes from our Los Amigos estate vineyard. Los Amigos is a classic, valley floor vineyard possessing sandy loam soils that are ideal for growing Bordeaux varietals. The varied soil types in this vineyard produce different flavor profiles among the vines and the wines that express the best characteristics of Alexander Valley’s eastern benchlands—velvety texture and bright, luscious flavors.
Winemaker Notes
With our 2017 Dry Rosé, we combined both the press and saignée methods. 66% of the fruit went direct to press, while the other 34% underwent the saignée method where the fruit was bled in tanks for 8–12 hours of skin contact to ensure vibrant, beautiful color. We then fermented and aged all the wine in stainless steel to maintain the delicate aromas and flavors we desired. While this Rosé is predominantly made from Cabernet Sauvignon (64%), we blended in 21% Merlot for softness, 6% Malbec to spice things up a bit, 5% Syrah, 2 % Zinfandel, and 2% Graciano for structure.
Food Pairing Notes
Crisp and dry, we recommend enjoying this refreshing, versatile wine as an apéritif or paired with a green salad, fresh fruit and feta, or a summer vegetable pizza.
