Best Buy! David Volmut moved from the Midwest to Washington because he wanted to turn his passion for wine into a profession. Volmut grew up in an Italian family, so when he established his winery in Sequim on the Olympic Peninsula, he gravitated toward Italian varieties. This rosé is a blend of Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Primitivo and Barbera from the Wahluke Slope, Yakima Valley and Red Mountain. It opens with aromas of white raspberry, dried strawberries and orange oil, followed by delicious flavors of cherry, raspberry and peach.
Production: 120 cases
