by | Aug 3, 2016 | Latest wine reviews, Outstanding, Washington | 0 comments

vino-la-monarcha-roseVictor Palencia follows up on his highly acclaimed 2014 rosé by going a little deeper into the color palette, creating a slightly darker tone. However, the 2015 also is racking up accolades, a double gold medal winner at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition and a gold medal at the 2016 Walla Walla Valley Wine Competition. The product of the Jones family’s 2 Gun Vineyard features stunning aromas and flavors of plum, cherry and raspberry. A dash of 1.4% residual sugar is just ahead of tart cranberry and baking spice, offering beautiful balance of color, flavor, acidity and sweetness. It’s a perfect summer wine.
