We have a unique opportunity here in Napa Valley – access to small production, high quality wines. From our dinner table to yours, we thought we’d start including some of our recent favorites.
Good wine: Kale Napa Valley Dry Rosé 2013
Juicy, lush, refreshing. This wine was an excellent accompaniment to dinner and enjoyable on its own to sip and relax.
“Who makes wine from kale?” Luckily, the answer to that is still, no-one, that I’m aware. Turns out Kale is the name of the winemaker; Kale Anderson (whose resume includes Colgin, Cliff Lede, and Pahlmeyer) produces wines with his wife Ranko under their own label Kale Wines. “I make wine with my senses, and I use science to gauge risk.” – Kale
This Rosé is comprised of 68% Grenache and 38% Syrah. The fruit was sourced from Rutherford and Atlas Peak. The wine was bottled unfined. Only 176 cases produced.
