Cenyth is a collaboration between Julia Jackson and Hélène Seillan, both of whom grew up in wine families. The longtime friends call Sonoma County home and each contributes artistically to the project. Julia, daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke, created the artwork for the labels. Hélène Seillan, daughter of winemaker Pierre Seillan of Vérité, makes the wines. Both Cenyth and Vérité are part of Jackson Family Wines. We received this wine as a tasting sample.
2019 Cenyth Rosé, Sonoma County — ballet slipper pink in the glass. Aromas and flavors are delicately floral with mixed berries, citrus and gravelly minerality. The finish is tart and medium in length. 13.5% abv. SRP $30
Cenyth 100% Cabernet Franc is sourced from the Jackson Park Vineyard in the Bennett Valley AVA. The fruit was picked early to preserve acidity and freshness. It was fermented in stainless steel and did not go through malolactic fermentation. Perfect for summertime sipping.
