After a one-year hiatus due to the fires of 2018, Reeve was once again able to make their signature rosé from the Vecino Vineyard situated in the northern corner of Potter Valley near the origin of the Russian River. Comprised of three different clones: 115, Pommard and clone 32. Clone 32 was brought over from France by Roederer in the 1970s for use in their sparkling winery in Anderson Valley. It contributes a pretty and high-toned aromatic quality to the finished wine, an appealing quality in young rosé.
The 2019 Reeve rosé was fermented mostly in stainless steel with a small percentage of neutral oak barrels (2%). It is a crisp, refreshing wine with a pale salmon color and expresses subtle red fruit, red apple skin, raspberry, watermelon, and citrus.
