In 2018 I realized my vision of creating three single vineyard, intentional rosés from the three beautiful Pinot Noir vineyards I have worked with since 2013. The Pratt Sexton Road is a full bodied, fruit driven rosé that will stand up to BBQ or a cheese and charcuterie platter!

“The first time I had an elegant dry rosé wine was on a simple but romantic picnic with my husband Simon in Provence 35 years ago. Local cheese, bread, fruit, the fabulous, dramatic scenery and that Provençal wine with its delicate salmon pink color, crisp acidity and floral aromas forever linked in my mind rosé wines with romance. In 2004, I harvested Olivet Grange Pinot Noir on September 1st, which was our 20th wedding anniversary. To celebrate and mark the occasion I made a special rosé, which I called “Endless Crush”.  I am very excited to share the three single vineyard versions this year. “ – Kathleen Inman, Winemaker and Owner

Some rosés are made as a by-product of red wine by bleeding off (saigner) some of the juice early in the production process to create a higher ratio of skin to juice, which will concentrate the resultant red wine. Endless Crush® is not made in this manner. The intention from the start was to create a rosé separate from our Pinot Noir. Rosés made intentionally, rather than simply by drawing off the freerun juice, tend to have greater complexity and structure because the entire cluster is destemmed and then the grapes are pressed within a few hours of destemming.

This 2018 vintage of Endless Crush® Pratt Sexton Road Ranch is made entirely from Jim Pratt's Sonoma County Sustainable, vineyard at the top of Sexton Road in the Sebastopol Hill Neighborhood; like that first rosé I enjoyed in France, this wine is a beautiful, rich pink with a hint of salmon and is juicy, crisp and refreshing.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The nose on this Endless Crush® is a heady blend of mace, nutmeg and berries. On the palate it reminds us of a bowl of fresh strawberries, raspberries and blackberries with an infusion of exotic spice. Intoxicating and with excellent acidity and a structure that we think will hold up to grilling and BBQ.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit was harvested by hand at night, and was destemmed, crushed and sent direct to a Diemme press and pressed on a delicate white wine cycle. The juice was moved to tank for cold settling, racked and then inoculated for primary fermentation using a Provençal yeast strain. It aged in small stainless steel barrels at ambient temperatures on the lees, with regular battonage, until it was prepared for bottling. After cross-flow filtration, the wine was bottled under Stelvin closure.
