This Napa Valley Rosé is a vivacious blend based on Pinot Noir with just a splash of Zinfandel to deepen its rich color. Our only rosé from Stephanie Putnam’s winemaking team at Raymond, it bursts with flavors of guava, raspberry and nectarine. Only 100 cases produced.
June started out warm, followed by a cool and foggy July and August that slowed ripening and caused nice retention of acidity. Even ripening, with no extreme heat events, made for ideal growing conditions. Sparse winter rains resulted in an early bud break, evenly developed clusters, and smaller berries packed full of flavor. Overall, the fruit was exceptional, making it another amazing year for quality.
