Subtle hints of rose petal drift above aromas of peach and strawberry in this silky, balanced rose. Much of the fruit for this was raised with a good View of the Sea, but that’s all we’re allowed to say about the elevated source for all this fresh, peachy deliciousness. We will add it’s definitely the carefully chosen coastal sites that lend such distinct minerality and fresh acidity to this memorable rose.
The folks at UC Davis said it couldn’t be done. When Walt and Joan Flowers saw a newspaper ad for 321 acres of land on the Sonoma Coast, just 2 miles from the Pacific Ocean, they were immediately intrigued, but took pause. Only a few families – the Hirsches and the Bohans – were successfully growing grapes in such a cool part of California. Thankfully the Flowers ignored the ‘experts’ and planted Camp Meeting Ridge in 1991, so named for its history as an indian encampment and later, a site for religious retreats. Today Flowers is known for making some of the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in America.
