The secret one.          

The 2019 Aratas ‘Surreptitious’ Rose Wine is produced from spectacular Syrah grown in the Los Carneros region at the southern end of Napa Valley. The Syrah clusters were harvested for our proprietary ‘Veneration’ red blend.  These super premium red grapes were selected for their color and depth of flavor…not produced with Rose in mind but we just couldn’t help ourselves. The free run seeping from the ripened berries at harvest was simply delightful and mouth watering so we slipped some aside for “our little secret”. The skins macerated for a week or so imparting a vibrant color but also rich flavor. While the nectar is concentrated in color, it’s refreshing to the palate. The wine was fermented in stainless tanks to keep it delightfully crisp in style. Its a wine just perfect for a warm spring day, a picnic or a cool evenings outside enjoying dinner from grill.

​This is medium bodied Rosé, a white wine for red drinkers if we may. And we hope you will.

​Each elegant bottle was laboriously harvested, crushed, bottled and wax dipped by hand.
