2008 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 2008 Querencia impresses with generous aromas of ripe cherry, raspberry jam and a delicate candied orange, followed by subtle hints of strawberry and lime. On the palate there are rich flavors of ruby grapefruit, spicy English candy, and tart orange, complimented with a touch of brioche and cinnamon roll. Snappy and crisp on entry, the wine’s pretty citrus flavors carry a long way on the finish.- Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
