Coyote Canyon Winery 2015 Life is Rosé, Horse Heaven Hills, $18

By on April 12, 2016

coyote-canyon-roseBarbera grapes from Coyote Canyon Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills and winemaker Justin Michaud created another gold medal winner for Prosser vintner Mike Andrews. As usual, it carries pie cherry aromas and flavors, with 1.2% residual sugar balanced by juicy acidity at the close. It’s a perfect summer picnic sipper that’s versatile enough to pair with a grilled pork chop dusted with fresh thyme and black pepper. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 190 cases
