New twist

The vines that produced this wine were planted in 1990, the first of 40 additional acres of Pinot Noir that we've planted in the last two decades. Navarro's last Pinot Noir Rosé was made in 1991 from a neighbor's grapes and we've been waiting until we could produce our next from estate grapes. We had a bounteous Pinot crop in 2009 and complete control of harvest so these grapes were picked at a perfect ripeness level for rosé. The juice macerated with the skins to extract flavor and color. The free run juice was cool fermented for four weeks until bone dry. We then racked the wine to seasoned barrels for three months aging sur lie, to enhance mouth feel. Bottled fresh, the flavor profile is red cherry, strawberry with a mouth-filling peachy creaminess and enough intensity to accompany lamb or duck. It will sell out faster than you can twist a corkscrew.

A Bald Eagle [above] has recently taken up residence near the pond that provides irrigation water for Hammer Olsen Pinot, the block that produced the grapes for this wine. We've been producing rosés for 11 years from the varieties used in Southern France, so we were ready for a new twist with this Pinot Noir Rosé.
