Rosedale Road connects to Pickett Road and runs East and West along a portion of the Frediani Vineyards. Planted in 1992 to Clone 7, the vines have southern facing exposure and are trained using to Geneva double curtain method. The Rosedale block comes from 6 select rows of the land where we harvest this single block Cabernet Sauvignon. Grown in a richer, bale clay loam soil, which gives it a distinct flavor profile from its Pickett Road counterpart.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon 125 Cases
The 2017 Rosedale Cabernet Sauvignon presents itself as fresh and full of life. Bright and elegant with notes of rhubarb, classic crushed red brick and savory red and black fruits with subtle earthy notes. Ripe flavors of luscious bright red fruits with youthful chalky tannins that will soften in the cellar. A heavy medium to full bodied extremely satisfying well balanced Cabernet.
