gordon-estate-rosé-2015-bottleTyler Tennyson, recently hired to take over the winemaking program at Dunham Cellars in Walla Walla, showed a flair for rosé via Malbec during his two crushes making wine for the Gordon family. Last year, he pulled Malbec from the Gordons’ picturesque 35-year-old Kamiak Vineyard overlooking the Snake River at 19.5 Brix for the expressed purpose of developing a seriously dry and food-friendly pink. It’s beautiful pale orchid color – it was pressed without skin contact – offers aromas of strawberry-rhubarb compote, apricot, lime peel and a bit of celery leaf. Those aspects play out on the palate with brisk approach that includes fresh cranberry, citrus peel and blueberry in the back.
