Pinot Noir Nouveau, a Rosé of Pinot Noir produced by River Road Family Vineyards and Winery… the beginning of a family tradition

2012 Nouveau Rosé of Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

This 2012 Nouveau (nuvo), a Rosé of Pinot Noir, is produced from hand-selected Pinot Noir grapes. We harvested the grapes from our lovely Russian River Valley vineyards, with only 240 cases of this very special wine being produced. Pinot Noir grapes were gently pressed during the winemaking process, with the free-run juice now being the hallmark of this Nouveau. Harvested in September of 2012, this Rosé was released on the first Monday of December 2012, marking our inaugural tradition… And, hopefully yours too, for any of your celebrations ahead.

Tasting Notes

The 2012 Nouveau is very light bodied, and has refreshing aromas and flavors of juicy strawberries and delicious plums. A soft Rosé of Pinot Noir, this wine is intended to be enjoyed as a young, uncomplicated beverage, with great everyday appeal.

Food Pairings

This wine will pair perfectly with Grilled Eggplant, Chicken Tetrazzini, or Vegetarian Taro Egg Rolls
