stoller-family-estate-pinot-noir-rose-2015-bottleMelissa Burr continues to showcase her talents with beautiful rosé from Pinot Noir from Bill Stoller’s estate in Dayton, Ore., and this latest version carries with a sense of panache, starting with its gorgeous color. The inviting florals open with strawberry and cherry, tones that continue onto the palate. Amazing cranberry acidity wraps itself around the midpalate of pink grapefruit, peach and apricot, and the brilliantly dry finish includes a nibble of cherry skin tannin for complexity. Suggested pairings range from wood-oven soppressata and coppa pizza, roasted beet salad with goat cheese, arugula and orange with a honey vinaigrette, warm heirloom tomato tart and vodka cured salmon with capers and vanilla. And at nearly 4,700 cases, this ranks as one of the Northwest’s most widely distributed pinks — more than double the production of the 2014 vintage.
