Harvested specifically for our Rosé Reserve Napa Valley 2020, the fruit comes from vineyards in the appellations of Oak Knoll District, where marine influences from the San Pablo Bay make for foggy mornings and cool summer nights, Rutherford, moderately warm and marginally affected by early morning fog, and Yountville, where the Bay’s strong breezes keep afternoons temperate. These ideal climates allow grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, helping our winemakers create balanced wines. Although all three AVAs lie on the valley floor, each possesses a distinct terroir. Together, they combine to help create a beautiful and refreshing wine designed to please palates whether spring, summer or fall.
