2007 Querencia (1 x 750 ml)
The wine was named by James Hickey, long-time Napa County planning director. The name is a Spanish word meaning "the deep and abiding affection one has for the place one calls home." It refers to the sense of being nourished by the place in which you belong, and the balance that exists between the land and its stewards.
Querencia is produced solely from fruit grown in the Napa Valley Carneros region. Chardonnay forms the blend's core, providing a relatively light-bodied, crisp and tangy palate. Small additions of Pinot Noir fermented with skin contact add berry brightness and color. This brut rosé sparkling wine is hearty enough to compliment the robust flavors of Mediterranean cooking and delicate enough to be served with a truly broad range of appetizers.
The 2007 Querencia has generous aromas of strawberry, watermelon, tropical mango and papaya,- Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
followed by the subtle nuttiness of almond cr&eè. On the palate there are bright flavors of mandarin orange, tart cherry and wild berry, which are completed by crisp raspberry and lime. In addition to the fruitful flavors, there is a delightful creaminess of a 50/50 Creamsicle bar and the richness of warm rhubarb cobbler that finishes with a long snappy and lingering acidity.
