2020 Bartolomei Vineyard rosé of Carignan
The 2020 harvest was trying, to say the least.
We were grateful that the organically-farmed Carignan fruit we use to make our rosé was mostly unscathed from the August wildfires.
This historical California vineyard has been in the Bartolemei family since the 1800's and the Carignan was planted in the early 1930's & late 1940's (between WWII). These dry farmed, head-trained vines look more like crooked trees shooting up from red rock soil -- a truly stunning place to grow the Southern Rhone varietal.
The resulting rosé showcases a beautiful, crisp acidity and an elegant palate that pleads for brunches, BBQs and beach days -- all socially distanced, of course! ;-)
Enjoy a bottle (or case!) today.
