SuLei Cellars 2014 Dry Rosé, Walla Walla Valley, $18

By on June 7, 2015

SuLei Cellars-2014-Dry RoseWalla Walla Valley winemaker Tanya Woodley nearly straddles the stateline at her Beet Road facility, and she takes a 50/50 approach to her latest expression of rosé with Tempranillo and Merlot off Vista Buena and Nume vineyards. It opens with a lighter-colored wardrobe in a Provence style and aromatics of cherry, dusty white peach, apricot and vanilla. Inside, it continues to offer white orchard fruit flavors of peach and and dried apricot, which are backed by tangelo acidity to balance the rich mouth feel and midpalate created by the aging in neutral French oak and stainless steel. And the finish is bone-dry.
