Little House Vineyard . Mokelumne River AVA

Lodi Rules Seal

With its deep magenta color, enticing aroma, and rich flavor, our latest rosé coming from the Little House Vineyard certainly isn’t shy. The bouquet is filled with vibrant raspberry, wild roses, and subtle spice undertones. On the palate these notes meld, introducing flavors that come together to resemble black cherry cobbler. Extended maceration offers this extra depth of flavor and richness while also retaining the delicate structure and smooth mouthfeel.

Production Notes

The 2021 vintage brought us the earliest start of harvest we’ve experienced, with our crews starting on July 26th.  After our white and early red varietals were brought in to the winery, many of our red varietals were predicted to reach maturity at the same time. The compaction of the second half of the harvest season became both a challenge and priority for us. As Fall approached, the smaller fruit set, paired with consistently higher temperatures caused many red varietals to mature rapidly. Varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Petite Sirah came off three weeks sooner than average, with slightly higher brix than targeted, although with good acidity.  With all said and done, the vintage came in smaller than expected, though with outstanding quality that we are thrilled to present.

Other Notes

Mokelumne River AVA – Named for the River that flows from the Sierra Nevada mountain range through the AVA, the Mokelumne River AVA is one of Lodi’s cooler climates. This, coupled with its optimal soil attributes, proves to be an ideal location to grow both white and red varietals.
