Planted in 1999, Skid Row Vineyard is the westernmost block on the Saracina Ranch Vineyards, marked by black clay and gravelly soils at the base of the foothills. We harvested the Malbec at sunrise on September 29, 2018. The fruit was harvested especially for our Rose’ program, destemmed, and the whole berries transferred directly into the press for a two-hour soak, then pressed gently to tank. The settled juice was fermented to dryness in small stainless barrels and tanks. The barrel and tank lots were assembled with fine lees in December and left on those lees until two weeks prior to bottling in March 2019. Can a wine be sophisticated and tons of fun simultaneously? I think so. Our beautifully pale coral 2018 Skid Rosé opens with rose petal and watermelon notes. It tastes of spring, crisp and delicate. Sophisticated; pair it with linguine with peas and smoked salmon. Ton-o-fun; your favorite authentic take out Mexican (I’m thinking tacos al pastor). Or just pour a glass, kick off your shoes and put your feet up because we all deserve that. Maybe there’s a sunset involved…
