2019 Golden West Pinot Noir Rosé

$18.00

Alluring color draws you in. Shimmering pale pink suggests that cherry blossom, apple skin, golden plum come juicy and layered. Watermelon rind, rose petals and star anise take you on a long ride to a delicious and mouthwatering finish. —Charles

Vineyard

The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Evergreen Vineyard, Ancient Lakes (100%): Planted in 1998 by Jerry Milbrandt, the vineyard lies along a stretch of steep cliffs above the Columbia River, in the AncientLakes. A cooler site due to river influence, the soils are composed of fragmented basalt, gravel, silt, and caliche deposited during ice age floods. As with all of Milbrandt’s vineyards, Evergreen is farmed using sustainable practices. This site produces fruit with sublime mineral character and great acidity, a balance that winemakers adore.

Vintage

The 2019 vintage was on the cooler side as it started slow with later-than-usual bud break and continued on to be fairly moderate throughout the year. Some vineyards had issues with an October freeze a bit earlier than usual, but our high-elevation vineyards have great air drainage which allows us to extend the growing season late into October without freeze. This yielded fantastic ripening and some awesome wines with incredible balance and character. Overall, we are excited about the wine produced in 2019, which has brought us more finesse, incredible flavors and lovely balance.
