2015 Vintage Notes

The 2015 Vintage will be remembered for high quality and low fruit yields.

The 2015 growing season in Napa Valley started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring. This resulted in an early bud break and bloom. Colder temperatures in May (during the peak of bloom) caused uneven fruit set which ultimately resulted in a much smaller crop in 2015, compared to the three abundant years that preceded it. This harvest was one of the earliest on record in Napa Valley, beginning on July 22nd, with the picking of grapes for sparkling wine, and concluding for most all vintners and growers in the valley by mid-October. While ongoing drought was of great concern to farmers around California the Napa Valley received 75% of normal rainfall for the water year. 

2015 Cultivar Napa Valley Rose

Julien Fayard, (our winemaker) is from the Azur region of France, so it only makes sense for him to make a beautiful inspired Rose, reminiscent of the French Rivera. A slight departure from our previous Rose, the grapes that make up the 2015 Rose are Graciano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot and a touch of Carignane and Mouvedre to round out the wine. Graciano is a Spanish varietal that is deep in color making it a perfect wine to build a rose wine, with nice structure and weight.  The 2015 Rose is a beautiful pink color with elegant strawberry and cranberry aromas with hues of roses that will capture your nose. On the palette you’ll taste cranberry and tart cherry fruit, with a little spice. The wine is bright and refreshing with a lingering finish.
