Vaughn Duffy Rosé 2016

Sonoma County, California

$21.99 / each

Description:

This super expressive, strawberry-scented rosé of Pinot Noir features fruit grown in the Russian River Valley and the Sonoma Coast. Only about 900 cases of this rosé were made in total, primarily using the saignee method by which a portion of a red wine (in this case Pinot Noir) is "bled off" to make rosé while the juice is still macerating on the skins and the hue is a light shade of pink. The rest of the wine later goes into red wine production. A small amount of grapes from Stori Vineyard were also whole-cluster pressed and incorporated into the final blend for this bright, fragrant bottling.
