mercer-wine-sadie-louise-rose-2013-bottleBest Buy! One of the state’s top sites — Spice Cabinet Vineyard near Crow Butte Park — fills Jessica Munnell’s winemaking kitchen for two estate rosés, including this fun, young and dry pink made of Grenache (89%), Sangiovese (6%), Mourvèdre (3%), Cinsault and Counoise. A nose-tickling blend of pink grapefruit, Rainier cherry, strawberry, tangerine and peach fuzz leads to bright flavors of strawberry/rhubarb compote and red currants, backed by cherry skin tannin. The structure is a bright, lush, rich and juicy. Enjoy with char-grilled lamb burgers.
