Parma Ridge Winery 2016 Parma Ridge Vineyards Estate Dry Rosé of Merlot, Snake River Valley, $17

By on August 24, 2018

Storm and Stephanie Hodge continue to attract wine lovers living in Idaho’s state capital out to the Sunnyslope Wine District by combining their crowd-pleasing cuisine with their expanding estate wine program. They use Merlot from their 10-acre vineyard near Parma for a slightly off-dry rosé that’s loaded with dark plum, raspberry and rose hips and finished by a spoonful of cherry pie filling. Enjoy with the Korean Chicken that Chef Storm plates at his on-premise restaurant. This bottling marks the second vintage as an Idaho winemaker for the former assistant director of dining at the University of Washington, who earned a degree in German from Idaho State University.
