Westport Winery NV Bog Berry Blush, Washington, $26

By on February 28, 2015

westport-winery-bog-berry-blush-nv-labelAn image of a cranberry harvester, created by Tokeland, Wash., watercolor artist Wally Mann, serves as the label for this succulent blend of cranberry with Gewürztraminer. It’s undeniably cranberry from start to finish and carries brilliant color, but there are added complex notes of raspberry, brambleberry leaf, rose petal and lime zest. Gorgeous acidity more than balances the lofty residual sugar of 15%, making this a pure drink. At the Westport Winery’s on-premise restaurant, they enjoy pairing this wine with their Beachcomber Sandwich, which features roast chicken, bacon and cranberry. A portion of proceeds from the sale of Bog Berry Blush is donated to the Cranberry Museum in Long Beach, where they celebrate the contributions made possible in part by the Furford Picker depicted on this label.
