Located on the west side of the Salinas Valley, the Arroyo Seco Appellation is uniquely characterized by an ancient riverbed (arroyo seco means ‘dry river’) surrounded by alluvial benchlands. Well-drained, stone-laden soil and cool coastal influence from nearby Monterey Bay yield grapes with concentrated flavor and balanced acidity.

Plentiful rainfall in the winter and spring months contributed to good growth conditions and bud break early in the 2020 season. Cold and windy conditions during bloom in late May moderately reduced crop sizes. Summer saw typical weather with warmer weeks as harvest approached. Vine and cluster health were excellent, with high-quality, clean fruit.

Our Rosé is produced using fruit dedicated solely to rosé production, picked at lower sugar and higher acids. The grapes were destemmed and left to macerate for one hour, then pressed. Its clean fermentation yielded a wine with bright fruit flavors and refreshing acidity, making it light and approachable.

Rosé is one of our favorite summer releases. Bright fruit flavors and racy acidity are clean and refreshing. Lively aromas of white peach, orange blossom, and subtle eucalyptus are followed by flavors of grapefruit, and watermelon hard candy. Dry and medium bodied, this wine is incredibly versatile – try it chilled for a patio lunch with caprese salad and salmon tartare.
