Why We're Drinking It:

Four reasons:

·    Two distinct techniques were used in the making of this delightful dry rosé, which gets its complexity and depth from partial saignée and partial direct-press juice.

·    The Pinot Noir contingent was sourced from a trio of top high-elevation vineyards: Cougar Rock high up in the Vaca Mountain Range, La Perla Vineyard in the Mayacama Mountains and Machester Ridge Vineyard in Mendocino County.

·    Brick & Morter’s source for Syrah is the West Block Vineyard from Petaluma.

·    The 2016 vintage is the fifth consecutive year for exceptional fruit quality in the Napa Valley and the Sonoma Coast.

Minimal intervention meets maximum winemaking intention in this 91-point (Wine Enthusiast) rosé. Mountain-grown Pinot Noir from premier vineyard sites was blended with 36% Sonoma County-grown Syrah, with 100% native-yeast ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel and zero oak to get in the way of this dry rosé’s intense mineral and wild strawberry flavors. “It offers deep grapefruit, mandarin orange and lime flavors that persist, please and quench on the palate, all in a compelling, complex light-bodied package,” writes the enthusiast. By eschewing commercial yeasts and other additives and insisting on only the lightest of fining and filtering before the wine went into bottles makes for a robust, aromatic quaffer equally bold in color, perfume and taste.
