This sparkling rosé has aromatics of lemon blossoms and strawberry, the palate shows lovely minerality and fine bubbles, with underripe strawberry, peach, and orange peel, with a lingering bright grapefruit on the finish.
Samantha Sheehan founded POE in 2009 after being inspired by the wines she tasted in Burgundy and Champagne. The goal is not to replicate Burgundy, but rather create alluring, vineyard specific, age-worthy wines revealing the beautiful terroir of California. There is minimal intervention, judicious use of sulfur, and never any additives.
POE produces traditional Champagne method sparkling wines, rosé, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and a nouveau from Pinot Noir. Each wine is made in very limited quantities, and sold directly from the winery and to high-end restaurants around the country.
One time per year POE opens its door at the nouveau release and celebration. We team up with a celebrated local Chef and prepare a meal for the local wine community and our customers. In keeping with the traditions of Beaujolais Nouveau, we set the date for sometime around the third week of November.
In the spring of 2017, POE teamed up with Farella Vineyard and Forlorn Hope to open a collective tasting room in the heart of downtown Napa. Guests can enjoy glasses, bottles and flights of their favorite POE wines, as well as explore other dynamic selections from both Farella and Forlorn Hope.
The current vintage of Ultraviolet Cabernet is comprised of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Red Hills AVA, and 5% Cabernet Franc from Coombsville in Napa Valley. Just recently she added a sparkling rosé to the lineup. Both wines are made in an artisanal manner, without any additives other than a judicious amount of sulfur.
Samantha has created and grown two other brands, POE Wines and Mommenpop Spirits. She was named one of Food & Wine Magazine’s “15 Women to Watch in Wine,” and has been featured in Bloomberg, Wine & Spirits Magazine (Best New Spirits with Mommenpop), the San Francisco Chronicle, LA Times, and many other publications.
Her wines are available to taste at Outland Tasting Room in downtown Napa.
