The 2016 Metaphora Rosé of Pinot Noir is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes grown in the cool temperatures of the Carneros region of Napa Valley bordering San Pablo Bay. The Pinot Noir grapes were fermented utilizing special “designer” yeast selections resulting a very delicious and complex rosé in a world where rosé is often considered sometimes light, “simple” and superficial.
The 2016 Metaphora Rosé of Pinot Noir has a concentration of complex berry fruit, accentuated with flavors of Bing and black cherries, cranberry, and a long strawberry finish. On the nose, you’ll detect raspberry, a kiss of pomegranate, and floral aromas. A lively acidity rounds out the finish. The refined flavors and textures of this wine, combined with its power and grace, give it a distinct Burgundian character.
This Rosé is modeled on the charms of the Loire Valley Rosés, such as Touraine, Anjou, Amboise, and with the lovely weight and richness of Sancerre rouge Rosé.
