New and improved

In 2021, we crafted our first Rosé of Sangiovese and bottled it in December. It was initially satisfactory, but not exciting. However, to our surprise, when we opened a bottle in June, we were amazed by its remarkable improvement. We concluded that we had bottled the 2021 much too early, so as a result, we bottled the current vintage three months later. This year's organically grown grapes come from the same vineyard as last year's—Gibson Vineyards near Hopland—so the fundamental characteristics remain consistent: bright acidity, juicy guava-peach-pomelo flavors and a bone-dry finish. In its first competition, the San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition with 5,500 wines being judged, it was declared the Best of Show Rosé. Gold Medal winner. 97 points.
