2018 Rose

For over a decade, Cyrus Creek Vineyards has produced but one wine, our well-received and always scarce Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 4. However, for the 2018 vintage our gifted, and award winning fourth generation wine maker, Massimo Monticelli, who has been responsible for the great success of our previous vintages decided that in addition to the traditional Cabernet Sauvignon, he would, as he did only once before, produce for all our enjoyment, one barrel Rose of Cabernet. The hand-culled fruit arrived at the winery in virtually perfect condition; small-berried, deep black-blue in color and loose on the clusters, all coveted characteristics of Diamond Mountain clone 4 cabernet. The first 60 gallons of the precious free-run juice was set aside for immediate fermentation into Rose.  The fermentation period was long and unhurried extending over a period of 12 weeks.

Description

Diamond Mountain District, Napa Valley (24 cases produced)

The resulting wine is a lovely expression of the grapes and the terroir. A gem with rich rose color finishing to the edge of the glass.  The elegant aroma evokes thoughts of summer berries and rose petals and is enchanced by a refreshing well-balanced minerality on the palate so reflective of its Diamond Mountain origins.  The crisp, refreshing mouth feel, velvety smooth on the palate, and extending to its lingering finish is manifest by flavors of black cherry, plum and pomegranate evidence of its clone 4 genesis.  The complexity of this wine makes it the ideal companion to summer foods.  For optimal appreciation, its best served very cold.
