Rosé for Mother’s Day!
Here’s to all of the moms out there 💕💕 We’re grateful for you, you help make the world go ‘round 🌎
This is a beautiful rosé made from Syrah; I love how fragrant this wine is, offering fresh strawberry and raspberry notes also a flinty, smoky influence.
We were introduced to this amazing winery while in Sonoma recently and we’re not looking back! We love their wines and story. Check out my prior notes for more detail.

Stopping by Ceja Vineyards for a tasting of five of their wines. @cejavineyards
Ceja is a Mexican-American family owned winery producing wines from both Napa and Sonoma valleys. “In one generation the Ceja family has gone from immigrant vineyard workers to grape growers and winery owners.” 💪
I loved learning about the inspiring background of this winery and family devotion to excellence. 💕💕
The wines are designed to be paired with food (especially, though not exclusively, traditional Mexican cuisine), but are delicious on their own, too.
Like this first wine - the 2018 Chardonnay “Reserve” from Carneros, Napa Valley - is smooth, creamy and delicious. It was 💯 barrel fermented and aged sur lie. It has ripe papaya, tart pineapple, passion fruit, ripe pear, melon, vanilla and crème brûlée notes. It’s positively gulpable. 🙌🙌
Also, the 2019 Bella Flor, Rosé of Syrah (highlight), from Sonoma Coast offers a bouquet of florals, raspberry, orange peel, and strawberry notes. Perfect poolside sipper ☀️ It was whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented aged sur lie for 7 months adding richness and complexity.
The 2018 Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast was fermented in an open top, small vat, cold soaked with gentle punch downs. It has cherry preserves, strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb, also some cherry blossom, pepper, sage, cola, vanilla and clove. 👃 👄 — 2 months ago
Well balanced with citrus melon and mineral notes. — a month ago
This is the best red I’ve had in a long time. 🍷 jammy and flavorful and sort of thick. A nice mouthfeel if you will — 2 months ago
