Vineyard notes: Benson Ranch (our very own vineyard), Mendocino County; farmed without pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fungicides.
Tasting notes: Generous body and compelling acidity; dried herbs and flowers, sea salt, bright fruits
Martha’s notes: The Negroamaro Rosato is my favorite wine I’ve made to date. With it’s racing acidity, concentration, and ample body, I believe it will show balance and beauty at any point in its lifetime, so drink now if you’d like to experience more of its fruit, or age as you please to continue to accentuate its body. This wine has an autumnal thread running through it. I am transported to a rocky mediterranean coast, where fall is still warm, I can smell sea air, prickly pears heavy with ripeness, and herbs drying in the golden autumn sun.
12.5% alcohol. Total SO2 was 9 mg/L, free SO2 <2 mg/L at bottling. 136 cases.
