Woodinville winemaker Bill Grassie built this dry rosé by bleeding off lots of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%) from such vineyards as Ambassador, Boushey, Stillwater Creek, Quintessence, Upland and Weinbau. The nose is rather fascinating and very fruit-forward with whiffs of red cherry, strawberry, blood orange and apricot. There’s a similar theme to the palate that opens with a touch of creaminess before readily giving way to flavors of Red Haven peach and blood orange, backed by pomegranate acidity and peach skin with a hint of cherry cordial in the finish. His wines are available his tasting rooms in Woodinville and Fall City.
