Best Buy! The Gordon family vineyard began in 1907 as its grandfather’s farm overlooking the Snake River north of Pasco, Wash, and he named it Kamiak Ranch as a tribute to the famous Yakama chief. They’ve adopted that name for their second label, and this pink is derived from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The slightly peachy color leads to aromas of dried strawberry, dusty Rainier cherry, rose petal and anise. Crisp and dry flavors focus on red currant and golden raspberry, backed by tangerine acidity, raspberry seed tannin and flecks of minerality. Suggested fare include spicy Asian dishes, scallops and grilled salmon.
