Bracing, direct-pressed rosé packs a punch of flavor--apricot, tangerine, passionfruit, and ruby grapefruit with signature Virage minerality.As always, we grow cabernet franc specifically for rosé, timing the harvest to capture crisp acids and the bright orange-pink fruit character we love in dry rosé. The crushed grapes macerate a few hours to extract a bit of color and aromatic nuance from the skins before pressing to separate the juice to ferment completely dry in cool stainless. Virage Rosé fans will find this vintage similar to 2012 in weight and flavor intensity. We picked wee riper than the very delicate 2013 vintage, ironically at the guidance of a French winemaking consultant newly arrived in Napa from Provence! 465 cases produced.
