Balletto Rose of Pinot Noir 2018
So fun and lively. Guava, watermelon, lime and savory aspects combine with a light, delicate texture to make this pretty and delicious wine. The balance is heavenly with just enough acidity and weight to make you crave the next taste. The Balletto Rosé is made exclusively from estate-grown Pinot Noir, a grape known for delicacy, light color and good acidity. It was cold fermented to complete dryness in 100 percent stainless steel to enhance its focus and harvested early to maintain acidity and lightness.

Bokisch Garnacha Blanc 2017, Vista Luna Vineyard$19.00
Although Markus Bokisch was raised in California, he spent his childhood summers in Spain with his family. In the Spanish tradition, he was given wine with water at meals.Little did Markus know, his tastebuds from then on were programmed towards Spanish wines. Using their Spanish connections Markus and Liz Bokisch began importing budwood and in 1999 they planted the Las Cerezas Vineyard, known as their “motherblock,” of Tempranillo, Albariño and Graciano. Garnacha Blanca, known as Grenache Blanc in France is the white berried form of Garnacha which originated in Spain’s northeast corner. It is medium bodied and aged in a small percentage of neutral white oak barrels. It is a perfect balance of fresh fruity characters such as white peaches, orange blossom and thyme combined with smooth creamy flavors of melon and apple cider. This drought friendly grape grows fabulously in California! Garnacha Blanca: Perfect summer wine. Soft & silvery on the tongue. A lovely minerality that lingers on the palate in the very best way.
