"We like elegant, structured wines rather than those big blockbusters, wines that are intriguing rather than overwhelming."

As Cheryl says, We like wines that are pretty. Both Ric and Cheryl love the almost exotic perfume Pinot Noir possesses when it's not been made, as Ric would say, Overeagerly. In this and every vintage, the goal is to make wine that is ethereal in lightness but heavy in intrigue.

We are excited to release our two new red wines; 2015 Pinot Noir and Zinfandel. This will make the ninth release of our Rossi-Wallace wines and we both feel that this vintage has furthered and perfected the focus to make wines with personality and stand-alone quality.

We were blessed with a spectacular ripening season and our two new reds certainly have been agreeably influenced from the benevolent climate.

Small Lot Pinot Noir   Rossi-Wallace 2015 Pinot Noir Napa County/Sonoma County/Monterey County
Due to an unusually cool period during flowering, Spring 2015, Pinot Noir experienced extreme shatter and hence a very small crop. Small is good for quality but bad for production. We had to out-source to make a commercially viable quantity. Perhaps necessity created a serendipitous eventuality. The three county selection from some exquisite vineyards has produced a truly plush and distinctive Pinot. The wine shouts "Pinot" with its' alluring strawberry, violet and raspberry fruit and is sensually warm and full in flavor. One sip begs for another! One of our best yet - 35 barrels produced.

Rossi-Wallace 2015 Napa Valley Zinfandel

  Our Zinfandel is a long-time idea come to fruition. We have felt for some time that Zinfandel and Sangiovese might be compatible in the same manner that Cabernet and Merlot compliment one another. We had to try it! Their compatibility is indeed real. The Zinfandel was sourced from a high-elevation vineyard in the cool Chiles Valley, the Sangiovese from the Antinori Vineyard - same source as our mainstay Pinot Noir. 80% Zinfandel and 20% Sangiovese worked. The absolutely beautiful raspberry Zin fruit mixed with a more spicy Sangiovese berry flavor is stunningly complex and beautiful. The Zinfandel acidity with the Sangiovese extract round out the exotic flavors into what is utterly different and delicious and will, in time, we feel, be quite outstandingly impressive. 8 barrels produced.
