A case for Thanksgiving wine
Waterbrook Winery 2012 Sangiovese Rosé, Columbia Valley, $11
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. It’s bright, crisp and perfect with a variety of lighter 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.
Pairings: Rice, squash and even cranberry sauce will work well with this tasty rosé.
