2019 'Pink Rabbits' Rosé of Syrah

COLUMBIA VALLEY

2019 began with favorable, steady temperatures that suggested harvest would begin earlier than the prior year. Between August temperatures and slow ripening fruit, we were able to harvest just before the October freeze in the valley. The vintage looks exceptional across all varietals and we are pleased with the fresh and vibrant flavors coming through.

In the vineyard

As we were preparing to begin picking fruit in August temperatures around the state suddenly dropped, causing most of our fruit ripening to slow and bestowing advantageous added hangtime and acidity. We finished harvesting fruit just before an early freeze throughout Walla Walla Valley in October.

Appellation Columbia Valley

In the cellar

In classic Washington style, our 2019 Pink Rabbits Rosé of Syrah is an exquisite example of a complete and balanced rosé that brings together bright acidity, fresh style, and an evolution of varietal character from the front to the back of the palate. With this vintage we were able to hone in on the richly complex varietal profile of Syrah that was afforded by the even, slow ripening of our fruit throughout the vineyard. 

In the glass

Vivid ripe strawberry character and more subtle crisp apple and stone fruit characteristics, this wine is energetic with a slightly-textured profile.
