The grapes were crushed and allowed to sit on skins for 6 hours to extract just the brightest fruit flavors.  The rosé juice was then racked off the skins and barrel-fermented in French oak barrels. The wine has a light strawberry color, aromas of fresh strawberries and cherries with a bright acidity and fresh strawberry and cherry flavors on the finish.
