Waterbrook Winery 2012 Sangiovese Rosé, Columbia Valley, $11

By on July 17, 2013

Waterbrook Winery is one of the oldest wineries in the Walla Walla Valley.Best Buy! Sangiovese is still a niche grape in the Northwest, but it is proving its worth both as a red wine and a dry rosé. Here’s a perfect summertime wine. It’s bright, crisp and perfect with a variety of different outdoor foods. It opens with aromas of orange zest, rose hip, salmonberry and pink grapefruit. On the palate, it leads with a tart entry with flavors of pomegranate, raspberry, strawberry and rhubarb. We’d pair this with salmon, grilled chicken or pasta tossed with grilled veggies.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 3,200 cases

Alcohol: 12%
