Bright fresh aromas of citrus, watermelon and strawberry with background notes of mineral and herb. Complex flavors carry through on the palate where the texture turns velvety and finishes with intriguing notes of dried herbs and citrus rind. Long, crisp and refreshing – a seriously delicious rose!
The Dakota Shy Rosé of Cabernet is a combination of direct-to-press Pinot Noir from the Carneros District of Napa Valley and saignée of Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition to the Pinot Noir juice, we “bleed” small volumes of juice from our freshly harvested and crushed Cabernet tanks and then ferment those in stainless steel barrels. Using a range of white wine yeasts and a long cool fermentation between 45 to 50 degrees – we craft a complex, dry and refreshing Rose.
