Pinot Noir demands the most from winegrower and winemaker. Here, a great vineyard and classic winemaking are perfectly matched.

Rosella’s Vineyard is among the most famed estates in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Planted by Gary Franscioni and his wife Rosella, their conscientious winegrowing and “Premier Cru” location yield top-flight Pinot Noir.

For years we have valued the consistent quality of Rosella’s Vineyard Pinot Noir. Located three miles south of our own Double L estate, Rosella’s is one of the top Pinot Noir vineyards in California. Planted in ‘96 to several Dijon clones as well as the famed “Pisoni” clone, Rosella’s benefits from the eastern exposure of its Santa Lucia Highlands benchland location. Fog and cooling breezes from the Monterey Bay, combined with well-drained alluvial soils make-up Rosella’s famed terroir.

Deep and concentrated, this limited production Pinot Noir showcases characters of  strawberry hard candy, forest floor, and savory dried herbs. Bright fruit and snappy acidity suggest this wine will age very well. The ‘17 Rosella’s Pinot Noir will prove a perfect match for rib roast, lamb chops, or just about anything off the grill.
