DeLille Cellars 2016 Rosé, Yakima Valley, $32
This year, DeLille Cellars used its Bandol-inspired rosé program to help celebrate its 25th anniversary and its award from Wine Press Northwest magazine as Washington Winery of the Year. This quaint chateau in Woodinville blends Grenache (46%) and Cinsault (12) from Boushey Vineyard with Mourvèdre (42%) for a particularly juicy and low-alcohol expression. Mourvèdre is credited with giving the wine its salmon color, and there are wonderful memories of summer in this aroma with ripe strawberries and juicy watermelon. They lead to flavors of brambleberry, red currant and strawberry leaf, making for a beautiful range of flavors and sensations.
