Alexandria Nicole Cellars 2013 a squared Rosé, Horse Heaven Hills, $14
Best Buy! Alexandria Nicole Cellars created this tier for fresh, fruit-forward and approachable wines, and here’s one of the first releases we’ve seen from the 2013 vintage. The off-dry rosé comes from Cabernet Franc (70%) and Tempranillo and features aromas of strawberry, cardamom, peach, apricot and lemon zest. Strawberry and Rainier cherry flavors, combined with breezy acidity, give this the profile of a quaffer. Serve well-chilled and enjoy with a ham sandwich.
