Columbia Valley, Washington
2015 was the warmest vintage on record for Washington State, and as a result picking decisions were more critical than ever. For Rosé, farming and water were key to avoiding dehydration, as well as picking at the right time. 2016 was the first vintage where Charles & Charles sourced fruit exclusively from vineyards devoted to the Rosé program. Syrah (61%), Mourvedre (12%), Grenache (10%), Cabernet Sauvignon (7%), Cinsault (7%), Counoise (3%).
