Our 2022 Serenity Rose of Pinot Noir is an alluring shade of cantaloupe, and that fruit shows on the nose of this bottling, alongside fresh strawberry and watermelon aromas. There's lift and balance to the palate,
and a tart, lemon acidity.
Our home ranch on the west side of the High Valley AVA has been known as “High Serenity Ranch” for over one hundred years. The blocks planted to this idyllic site include Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Gewürztraminer. Each block is comprised of ancient lakebed and alluvial soils from the surrounding mountain range. The transverse valley winds create some of the coolest sites in Lake County. The lower temperatures on the valley floor allow for diurnal temperature swings of more than
forty degrees, enhancing flavor development while retaining a crisp acidity.

We pick these Pinot Noir grapes exclusively for Rosé, at lower sugar levels, producing brighter flavors and a balanced body. After gentle pressing, we allow the juice to cold settle overnight. This creates the delicate color we love to see in our Rosé. The next day we rack the juice off heavy lees and
ferment in small stainless-steel tanks. Sur lie aging with battonage (lees stirring) once a week in tank creates additional body, texture and viscosity in the wine. This wine was aged nine months, lightly fined and filtered before bottling for maximum freshness and clarity.
