Harbinger Winery 2012 Rosé of Lemberger, Red Mountain, $17

By on August 20, 2013

Harbinger Winery is near Port Angeles, Washington.Lemberger is a red Austrian grape that has been at home in Washington state for four decades. In fact, Walter Clore, “the father of Washington wine,” was a big fan of the variety and how well it could do in the warm climes of the arid Columbia Valley. This winery west of Port Angeles has turned it into a rosé – albeit one that is somewhat dark in color – that is smooth and delicious. It opens with aromas of poached plum, cherry and cranberry juice, followed by sturdy flavors of cherry, red plum and pomegranate. It’s a rich summer sipper.
