"The 2021 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard was matured for 10 months in 40% new French oak. It has slowly unfurling aromas of wild berries, Christmas spices, potpourri and mossy bark. The medium-bodied palate offers concentrated layers of spicy fruit framed by silky tannins and mouth watering acidity, and it has a long, dynamic finish."

Erin Brooks, The Wine Advocate
    About This Wine

    A wine that has the signature Rosella’s notes of graceful tannins and racy acidity, this is a Pinot Noir that showcases the windswept northern Santa Lucia Highlands and meticulous viticulture that makes the fruit shine so brightly. The brightness of this wine is incredibly difficult to resist. With 2021 being a near picture-perfect vintage, the harmony of the fruit and resulting wine was obvious as soon as the fermentations began. This was a great vintage to do as little as possible once the fruit was in the winery – the bright flavors, soft tannins and zesty acidity provided a great balance that we wanted to let shine through. With almost no fingerprints from a winemaking perspective, this wine is a testament to a great site that is always impeccably farmed and showcased through an excellent vintage.
