Waterbrook Winery 2015 Sangiovese Rosé, Columbia Valley, $13
Best Buy! One of the Pacific Northwest’s largest productions of rose remains devoted to the Italian variety. Aromas of raspberry, fresh cranberry, peach skin and green peppercorn lead to flavors of Rainier cherry, strawberry and plum. Its tangerine-like acidity and sweetness profile of 1% residual sugar make this a quaffer that’s intended to be served well-chilled. Enjoy with barbecued chicken, spicy Asian fare or the dark meat from that holiday bird.
