2018 Casteñada Rosé

2018 Casteñada Rosé

The 2018 Casteñada Rosé is refreshing, vibrant, and stunning. Bursting with strawberries and honeysuckle, it is perfect for the warmer months ahead. Made up of mainly Syrah and Grenache, this wine has substance and presence, while Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, and Viognier provide hedonistic aromatics. The Rosé is one of three Casteñada wines honoring Don Juan Casteñada - the first owner of our Adobe tasting room. The Adobe is one of Sonoma's last remaining buildings from California's Mexican era, and we cherish the opportunity to honor it and its history with this wine.

2018 was one of those magical years. With a mild spring, the early growing season plodded along at a relatively normal pace. Once the berries set, we knew we had a healthy and full crop. So full, in fact, we did a number of fruit-thinning passes to reduce load on the vines. Even with this, we were happy to see an above average harvest with superb quality. We started picking in earnest after Labor Day, with cool, fall weather that allowed us to transfer the grapes in a calm and measured pace. All in all, 2018 will go down as a year to remember, with wines of true depth and power.
