Rosé of Pinot Noir 2019
THE VINEYARD: Since 2012, Ernest Vineyards has sourced Pinot Noir from premier, cool-climate Sonoma Coast sites. In our inaugural effort crafting rosé, we’ve chosen to blend this saignée, The Motley, from each of our five Pinot Noir vineyards allowing for astonishing complexity in such a refreshingly light wine.
LABEL STORY: The curious characters in Erin’s home county influence the philosophy behind The Motley, a spirited blend of Pinot Noir. In one small spot on the map, a variety of personalities combined with differing ideas, dreams and experiences helping define a unique place.
TASTING NOTE: Derived from Sonoma Coast pinot noir grapes, this wine notes fresh herbs, clean mountain air and tart strawberries. There’s a lingering refreshing sensation left on the palate reminiscent of citric and stone fruits and flowers. This wines shows us lovely and seductive notes of Pinot Noir while electrifying our palates with it’s zesty acidity.
