TruthTeller Winery 2017 Quip Rosé, Yakima Valley, $15

By on August 14, 2018

Best Buy! Two years ago, Chris Loeliger changed the name of this business from Jester Cellars to TruthTeller Winery, and his Bandol-inspired rosé fits nicely within the theme of his brand. His relationship with Sugarloaf Vineyard stems from being a worthy customer of Joe Hattrup, owner of nearby Elephant Mountain Vineyard, and the direct-to-press Mourvèdre is reminiscent of Provence, starting with its salmon color. Aromas of nectarine skin, cherry blossom, yellow grapefruit and strawberry lead to a fleshy and refreshing drink of melon and peach that carries a pretty pop of lemon/lime in the finish.
