Blooms Winery 2012 Blush, Rattlesnake Hills, $19

By on February 13, 2014

blooms-winery-logoKen and Virginia Bloom launched their Whidbey Island winery in 2003, and the Langley couple is so enamored with Julie Bosma’s work growing Rhône varieties in Washington’s Rattlesnake Hills that she’s established an estate vineyard for the Blooms. This dry rosé is made using Bosma Vineyard Syrah, and it begins with an orange hue that’s effusive with aromas of raspberry, watermelon, dried raspberry and fresh caramel. The drink is remarkably food-friendly and laser-focused with flavors of strawberry, red currant, orange peel and watermelon rind. Try with flatbreads, quiche or a grilled cheese sandwich.
