TASTING NOTES

A new wine from the famed 2020 vintage, this deep ruby rosé is vibrant and seductive with fresh strawberries, red cherry, hibiscus, and plums. This is a rosé for those who like a full-flavored and fuller-bodied rose that can handle foods that you would normally pair with lighter red wines.


VINEYARD NOTES

The grapes mostly come from vineyards on Seneca Lake where the slightly warmer mesoclimate ripens this variety well. Our Seneca vineyard is located in Hector, New York, in the warmest mesoclimate in the Finger Lakes known as the ‘Banana Belt’. Temperatures here are a few degrees warmer than Keuka thus providing riper fruit notes. Soils on Seneca are characterized by deep honeoye silt loam.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Hot and dry is a great way to describe the 2020 growing season. The trend of late bud break continues, beginning in mid-May. A month later in mid-June, most varieties began
flowering and fruit set. Between bud break and fruit set, it was warm and dry with only considerable rainfall a handful of times. This allowed the bunches to fertilize properly. Throughout the growing season we were blessed with hot and dry conditions. This kept disease pressure very low. Luckily, our old vines are able to withstand drought conditions. The warm and dry weather continued into the fall allowing us to fully ripen grapes well into October. The 2020 vintage was one of the best years in recent memory.
