To make Layer Cake Rosé, we select grapes from our California vineyards at a high acidity level to get the crispness and touch of fruit we’re looking for. The grapes are left to rest for just long enough for the juice to take on color. When it reaches the perfect hue, we apply cool, gentle fermentation in stainless steel tanks that allow us to get the delicate flavors from the vineyard to the bottle without losing complexity.
Layer Cake Rosé is perfectly pale pink and reminiscent of rose gold liquefied in the glass. Aromas of passion fruit, pink grapefruit and dried rose petals mingle with the slightest hint of dark chocolate and cranberry. On the palate, tropical flavors of guava and crushed loquat harmonize with field-ripened strawberries, picked fresh for the farmers market. The vibrant acidity is layered with pink grapefruit zest, rhubarb and pineapple that culminates in a bone dry, refreshing finish.
