MINER FAMILY WINE NOTES
2013 ROSATO MENDOCINO
Made using the traditional saigne´e method of bleeding off juice from freshly crushed red grapes, this dry, medium-bodied rose´ shows crisp cherry-pomegranate flavors on the palate. Mendocino’s cooler temperatures mean a longer hang time and outstanding berry concentration. Enjoy Rosato well chilled and within two years of the vintage.
2013 NAPA CHARDONNAY
Sourced from select low-yielding vineyards in Napa Valley, our Chardonnay is characterized by crisp apple, ripe melon and citrus flavors gently balanced with toasty French oak.
The winemaker uses ma- lolactic fermentation in moderation to retain the wine’s bright acidity.
More than a decade after our Chardonnay put us on the map, this wine remains a classic.
