Abacela 2014 Estate Grenache Rosé, Umpqua Valley, $18
Year after year, this Southern Oregon winery produces one of the West Coast’s most brilliant expressions of rosé and has helped promote the use of this Rhône variety as a pink in the process. Its appearance of Ruby Red grapefruit carries aromas of Rainier cherry, red currant, raspberry and strawberry taffy, backed by lime zest. The drink is bright, tasty, dry and rather delicate with flavors of white peach, pink strawberry and kiwi fruit, balanced with Key lime acidity and a thread of minerality. It’s ideal paired with virtually anything served on a tapas plate.
