The site sits about 10 miles south of the Arroyo Seco in the foothills outside of King City, and is known for blustery afternoon winds similar to the mistrals, or winds, that blow in the south of France. We call upon this site for Cinsault to make a rosé for our Eugenia brand; less than one acre at the site is planted to these grapes.
The aromas are bright and lively with lovely notes of tangerines, citrus blossoms, and minerality reminiscent of river pebbles. The acidity is tantalizingly bright with notes of Meyer lemon, clementines, kumquats, fresh pineapple, and green guava. The wine finishes as it starts with loads of energy and lingering freshness.
