The style of this wine, traditionally known in France as
2015 OEIL DE PERDRIX PINOT NOIR BLANC
SONOMA COUNTY
THIS IS A BESPOKE ROSÉ IN THAT THE PINOT NOIR GRAPES WERE GROWN SPECIFICALLY
WITH THE INTENTION OF MAKING A ROSÉ WINE. THE DELICATE CHARM, YET INTRIGUING
COMPLEXITY OF THIS WINE HARMONIZE BEAUTIFULLY IN THIS VINTAGE OF BELLE GLOS
PINOT NOIR BLANC, BY PRESENTING BRIGHT, BERRY FLAVORS BALANCED
WITH A CRISP, REFRESHING STRUCTURE.

The style of this wine, traditionally known in France as oeil-de-perdrix
(pronounced: uh-ye-duh-per-dree), translates to “eye of the partridge,”
and has been made by my family, using Pinot Noir grapes, for 40 years.
Producing this wine requires a gentle hand and a readiness to press the
juice quickly once it reaches the desired level of color. It is a true-to-theroots style that is not just a by-product of red wine. The juice is fermented
partially in French oak barrels, which add enough rich texture and light
spice to beautifully complement the generous fruit-filled flavors.
Please enjoy this wine very well chilled. Finished with a twist‐top to
preserve the crisp, clean aromas and tastes, it is well matched with picnics,
served on the patio, light dishes or enjoyed on its own as an aperitif.
TASTING NOTES
Pale pink with a copper hue, this wine has a classic “eye of the
partridge” color. Citrus-driven aromas carry through to the palate.
On entry, bright acidity and flavors of pink grapefruit and lemon zest
enliven the orange creamsicle notes, while hints of dried apricot and
sweet spice add complexity. The brightness verges on minerality, but
there is so much weight that the richness balances out the firm acidity
and carries the flavors of dried fruit through the long-lasting finish.
Release Date: February 2016
