The St. Helena Star and Napa Valley Vinters Tasting Panel rated the 2014 Ruby Tuesday Rosé one of the best in the Napa Valley and we think the 2015 is just as good! "A kick-off-your-shoes kind of rosé, this one is for sitting in the grass, enjoying sunny skies and the scents of surrounding flowers. You could be in the south of France, or you could be in your backyard. Either way, this is an attitude adjusting wine; sure to make you stop and, well, smell the roses". This is THE wine to share at Easter brunch, bridal showers, baby showers, or any Tuesday!
Five years ago we produced a very small quantity of this wine from the first harvest from our friends and neighbors, Cathy & Rick Osgood. The wine turned out fantastic, selling out in 2 weeks. Since then we've been begging for more fruit so that we can produce more of this great wine. This year we’ve made twice as much so more of our fans can grab some. The wine has notes of tropical fruit flavors with hints of white peach and pear. It is a bright and refreshing wine with a burst of lemon zest and a delicate minerality. Another perfect summer day wine.
Beginning in 1998 when we purchased our property on Big Ranch Road in Napa, we held a vision that very special wines and memories could be created in this location. Since then over 20,000 vines of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Viognier and Cabernet Sauvignon have been planted, tended, nurtured, harvested, crushed and coaxed into fine wine.
The vineyard is located in the Oak Knoll District of the Napa Valley which is known for its slightly cooler climate and heavy clay soils. This environment produces ultra-premium Merlot and Syrah used in many of Napa Valley's most sought after wines.
Today, while we still sell over 50% of our grapes to other premium wineries we also produce very limited quantities of ultra-premium wine. These wines are produced using only the best materials and practices in search of creating wines that reflect a full bodied style that express the best attributes of the land.
