2020 Acumen Rosé Magnum
Located in the famed eastern mountains of Napa Valley, our Attelas Vineyard was first planted in 1992 and was the original ‘home vineyard’ of legendary winegrower Dr. Jan Krupp. Attelas is situated at approximately 1,300 feet and features 32 acres of vines, planted in volcanic, clay, and loam soils as a mosaic of 20 vineyard blocks—including eight blocks and six different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, and Tempranillo. With a predominantly northwest exposure, Attelas is a cool site in a cooler appellation, making it ideal for crafting a bright and alluring rosé.
2020 Vintage Notes
The overall weather throughout the 2020 growing season was excellent. After a dry winter, bud break started early in our vineyards. The temperatures throughout spring and summer were relatively mild, ensuring that the grapes had ample time to develop vibrant, complex flavors and generous textures. Simultaneously, the overall lack of precipitation kept canopy growth in check and produced small clusters with highly concentrated berries. As a result, our wines from the 2020 vintage display excellent structure, compelling aromatics, and lush varietal flavors.
