Tasting Notes: A summer-ready rosé with notes of white raspberries, strawberries, rhubarb, and sumo citrus with vibrant, food-ready acidity.
Vintage Notes: Rain events at the beginning of bloom diminished yields, and a dry summer was punctuated with unprecedented heatwaves. The timing worked in the winery's favor since the heat happened pre-veraison, and the vines handled it well. Harvest started in early September, but lower temperatures across the state allowed for a long and measured harvest season, with harvest extending into mid-October. No disease, high sugars, balanced acids, and great flavors. 2021 will undoubtedly rank as one of the top Oregon vintages.
