Meet the wine
Composition: 35% Chardonnay, 21% Sauv Blanc, 14% Rosé of Zin, 11% Rosé of Petite Syrah, 7% Pinot Gris, 6% Syrah, 4% Chenin Blanc, 1% Albariño, 1% Semillon.
This electric, vibrant Rosé is a blend of 9 grapes from A to Z, Albariño to Zinfandel. Chris believes in little guys helping little guys; each component is sourced from family farmers on the North Coast. The result is a pretty, aromatic wine with notes of cranberry, raspberry, and citrus; a lightly bubbly and downright quaffable beverage. The wine has a “Brut Zero” dosage - with no sugar added - nice winemaking flex, Chris.
