Last of the Summer Wine

Let's do this. One last spree before sunset. A final frolic in the heat and haze. The next time we meet like this, the breezes will be cooler, the leaves will be redder, and the harvest will be almost ripe. It's the last Wine-Off of the summer. And we don't intend to waste it.

Back to the Woot-Off!

Features

2012 Fable Rosé of Charbono, Napa Valley 750ml 4-Pack

Sensory Notes: A beautiful strawberry hue in the glass, this unique rosé has blueberry and white pepper on the nose. The palate shows blue and black fruit notes, carried by an almost chewy mouthfeel. Bright acidity keeps it refreshingly balanced from beginning to end. An exceptional glass of wine with unusual complexity for a rosé.

Vintage: After two challenging years of weather, in 2012 Mother Nature gave growers one of the best harvests in recent history. Growing conditions throughout the year produced an abundant crop of mature grapes with balanced flavors and good structure. An abundance of California coastal weather-- fog in the morning, and warm sunshine in the afternoon, often sent temperatures into the mid 90s, quickly cooling off after sunset. The daily cyclical temperature shift often hit 50 degrees, and continued into September ripening fruit evenly and slowly. Fruit quality was exceptional.

Certainly one of the most unique wines we produce and we always wish more was produced. Made from 100% Charbono from Napa Valley.

Don Meyer planted this vineyard with his father when he was a young man. He remembers going to Inglenook to buy budwood to graft onto the new rootstock. Meyers Vineyard has a lot of history, between the owners and the soil itself-- you can hardly refer to it as such-- it’s a relic of eons of volcanic activity. The ground crunches underfoot as gnarled vines obstinately grow in a field of fist-sized lava rocks. From a winemaker’s perspective, it’s an amazing site to grow wine grapes.
