Yakima Valley winemakers Flint Nelson and Cat Warwick moved quickly and skillfully in launching their new Wit Cellars brand, and this 50/50 blend of Sangiovese and Tempranillo from the Wahluke Slope doesn’t disappoint. Its light strawberry color brings aromas of fresh strawberry, cherry and raspberry with peaches and cream. There’s a match on the palate, which is clean and tasty. Lingering flavors of white peach and dried strawberry pick up a touch of orange zest in the finish. Suggested pairings include fresh fruit, tomato jam and cheese, and these exciting wines are available at the Wit Cellars tasting room in Prosser between Hogue Cellars and Mercer Estates.
