One of the valley’s newest wineries, Knot Wines, is releasing two youthful sparkling wines made with grapes from vineyards in Napa Valley, Sonoma and Monterey counties. Six years in the making, the wines are produced and bottled in the Napa Valley.
The Halyard, named for the sailing rope, is a non-vintage Brut from 2006 and 2007 fruit, with four years en tirage. The wine is both full-bodied and powerful with a creamy finish. Suggested retail price is $25.
The Sinnet, named for an intertwining knot, is a rosé from the 2007 vintage . Suggested retail price is $32.
“When we blended the final dosage s earlier this year, we finally felt that they were as good as they were going to get — and the wines are tasting beautifully,” said owner and partner Brent Pierce. “We thought these were exactly the wines we wanted to toast with this holiday season, so it seemed like exactly the right time to send them to market.”
They are available to the trade through Kimberly Jones in California at kjswines.com and direct to consumers nationwide at email@example.com. For details, visit KnotWines.com.
