2006 August West Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard

See wine details

Winemakers notes: The Rosella’s Vineyard Pinot Noir is the wine which launched the August West label in 2002. In a way, we could call it our flagship wine. The 2006 version shows classic Rosella’s Vineyard characteristics, and is a testament to Gary Franscioni’s unparalleled farming of his vineyard. It starts with the intriguingly spicy and fruit-driven nose which immediately tells you the wine is from the Santa Lucia Highlands. The natural acidity on the palate brings the wonderful rhubarb and cola flavors into focus in time for the long, slightly toasty finish. The 2006 Rosella’s Pinot Noir should drink well from the end of 2008 through at least 2012.
