2019 Kelly Fleming Rosé of Cabernet
The 2019 Kelly Fleming Rosé was made with saigneé juice from our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in Calistoga. The juice was given about 3 hours of skin contact prior to being cold fermented in stainless steel. The wine was aged for six months in 4 stainless steel drums and 1 neutral French oak barrel, before being bottled in March of 2020.
Our 2019 Kelly Fleming Rosé has a classic and elegant pale pink hue. The aromatics are vibrant with notes of strawberry candy, tangerine essence and mint leaf followed by a rich honey note. The palate is broad and coating, yet has a rush of zesty blood orange and grapefruit citrus that energizes and lengthens the palate. Notes of blood orange and ruby red grapefruit linger on the juicy, refreshing palate.
