Flambeaux Sonoma County Rosé is crafted from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, each sourced from spectacular hillside sites: our estate Flambeaux Vineyard in the steep, iron-rich hills of Dry Creek Valley and Toby Lane Vineyard, high in the hills above Alexander Valley. We love hillside vineyards as the thinner soils and cooler evening temperatures allow the vines to grow smaller berries with thicker skins, leading to complex and concentrated wines.
Just after harvest, the grapes were destemmed and put into small stainless steel tanks to begin fermentation. After only a day, the juice was gently removed from the tank and put into stainless steel barrels and neutral French oak. This juice was more pink than red, due to it's short contact time with the red grape skins in the tank. Then fermentation was initiated and the wines underwent a cool and long fermentation, so the beautiful aromatics and flavors are retained.
Taking the more luscious and fruit-forward profile from Zinfandel and adding in the more tannic and structured components from Cabernet Sauvignon builds the Flambeaux Sonoma County Rosé into a classic and fun styling. This combination is what I love about rosé: it doesn't have any pretense but is still a very serious wine. Lively acidity, beautiful strawberry fruit notes, and a bit of back-end structure to balance with light fare ensures it will be a welcome addition to your table.
Try Flambeaux Sonoma County Rosé with ceviche, french fries, or fish tacos. Most importantly—enjoy with sun (or for a vicarious taste of it!)
Flambeaux are the dancing torchbearers of New Orleans Carnival. For a century and a half, they have illuminated the New Orleans night parades, dancing and twirling their torches so as to cast a magical, flickering light over the spectacle. To many New Orleanians, the Flambeaux are the quintessential symbol of Carnival, representing tradition, light, dance and most of all, joy. We have named our wines after this time-honored symbol of our native New Orleans, as the Flambeaux best represents all that we love about wine—light flickering in a dark glass, complex flavors dancing across the palate, and celebration of life.
