SR Tonella Cellars Napa Valley Rose - 4th generation Rutherford vintner.
2016 S.R. Tonnella Napa Valley Rose
Brilliant in both color and taste. Juicy cherry, orange and citrus notes with a well rounded mouth feel, progressing to a lingering finish of citrus and cherry. Proprietary blend of Syrah, Grenache, Merlot and Pinot Noir. At a very nice price for Napa fruit.
S.R. Tonella Cellars is the culmination of over 100 continuous years in the wine business in Rutherford, Napa Valley. From great uncle Joseph Ponti, the winemaker for 43 years at Beaulieu Vineyards, he passed down to Steve's grandfather, Louis Tonnella, the Niebaum-Tonnella vineyard. Steve's father Raymond inherited the knowledge of the vine.
Grape growing and wine production have been a part of Steve’s life and family history. Steve continues this heritage and spirit. Historical events have been written after-the-fact but living history is made every day with family, friends, co-workers and casual encounters. It’s those relationships, the real events in our own histories, which have a meaningful impact . S. R. Tonella Cellar’s aspiration is that our wine is shared to create some small but memorable piece of history with everyone who crosses paths with us. Salud!
