The 50 by 50 Estate is a twenty-three acre property situated southeast of the Atlas Peak AVA and north of the Wild Horse AVA. More specifically, it sits on the Monticello Road incline in the Wooden Valley of Napa, California. Starting at a roadside elevation of 830 feet, it meanders pleasantly down to 600 feet. The gentle slopes are covered with forward gravelly loam, a rich volcanic soil that drains well and lends itself perfectly to the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot varietals that are presently being planted there for the purpose of producing an exquisite, hand-crafted, biodynamically farmed, Bordeaux-style blend in the coming years. In the meantime, 50 by 50 is sourcing pinot noir from Sonoma County and making Burgundian style wines with serious structure and an old school mentality. The label is owned by Gerald Casale from the legendary group Devo, a man who appreciates his old world wines. The 2015 50 by 50 Rosé of Pinot Noir is fashioned from the same 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir clones as its still gestating big brother. The 4.8 tons of grapes were harvested in September of 2015 in a growing season punctuated by a warm, dry fall that many say exceeds the much-vaunted 2012 vintage. After brief contact with the skins the pink juice was poured into neutral oak barrels. The result is a crisp and aromatic rose that guarantees satisfaction!
