2017 Dry Rose of Barbera, Clarksburg - Dashe Cellars

PRE-RELEASE for WINE CLUB MEMBERS

HISTORY We are unabashed fans of rose, and have been ever since first being introduced to the crisp, refreshing, dry roses of southern France, decades ago. They are some of the most drinkable and flexible wines around, and the lovely, complex flavors, crisp acidity, and round texture of a well-made rose is a thing of beauty.

Our dry rose is made from a block of Barbara that is specifically set aside for us to make rose, from a great vineyard in the Clarksburg appellation where the hot days are mitigated by the cool breeze and fog rolling in from the San Francisco Bay. The resulting pale salmon color, beautiful aromatics, and lovely texture of this wine just speak to us of summer picnics and BBQs. PRODUCTION Since these grapes were picked exclusively for rose, we were able to pick early to preserve acidity, and immediately load the grapes into our membrane press. Pressing roses on their own (rather than bleeding the rose from a tank of red grapes) is a way to make the finest, most subtle roses. We fermented the wine on its native yeast, to obtain a distinctive wine that reflects its vineyard terroir. The wine was fermented to dryness in stainless steel, and was quickly bottled to keep its freshness and bright fruit flavors. It is a perfect wine on its own as an aperitif, or will easily pair with light meals or even grilled meats.

2017 Duet - Sonoma County - Philip Staley Vineyards & Winery

Duet is a California version of a Graves style Bordeaux Blanc, a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Philip first made this wine in the mid-80s when it quickly developed a cult following. The heart and soul of the wine are the two wonderful vineyards from which it is sourced: Richard Rued's small Semillon vineyards in Dry Creek, and Kent Richie's Poplar Vineyard on the Russian River. Contracts for both vineyards had remained with Philip's previous winery when he left, but he told both growers that if their grapes ever became available, he dearly wanted to work with them again. They did, and Duet was reborn.

The nose is full of aromas of melon, pear, and ripe fig with the characteristic grassiness of the Sauvignon Blanc. This light, crisp wine is exceptionally refreshing and also the perfect foil for seafood, especially oysters. It drinks beautifully now, but will gain complexity over the next two to three years.
