It is a bright, elegant wine with aromas of strawberry, watermelon, apricot and purple lavender, followed by crisp, dry flavors that hint at Rainier cherry, raspberry, apple and ripe strawberry. It’s a perfect summer wine, and fortunately, production of this pink was increased 50 percent from 2012.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 480 cases

Alcohol: 14.5%
