Our 2004 Roseum is a seasonal wine inspired by the refreshing, dry rosés of southern France. With its sun-soaked slopes and coastal ambiance, Paso Robles boasts an ideal terroir for echoing the flavor and spirit of these popular Mediterranean wines. (“Ros-é-um” - Lat. rose colored; of the rose). The inspiration for the name comes from the Rhône valley’s history that is still evident in its Roman ruins and in the endurance of its centuries-old wine trade.

The grapes were hand harvested at our Pleasant Valley and Huerhuero vineyards. The wine was made in the classic saignée style, with free-run juice bled from the tank after abbreviated skin contact, then cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve aromatic complexity and freshness. A percentage of Viognier was included in the final blend to uplift the bouquet and to fill out the fruit profile.

Enjoy now through 2007.
