Milbrandt Vineyards 2016 Rosé, Columbia Valley, $13
Best Buy! Even though Emily Haines left Milbrandt Vineyards last summer for the Sierra Foothills, wines that she produced continue to win plaudits from judges. One of first wines released from her final harvest was this stunning pink blend of Syrah (75%) and Tempranillo off six vineyards, all picked around Brix 21. Aromas of nectarine, freesia and pear, are followed by a light-bodied, fruit-forward drink reminiscent of fresh strawberries and watermelon. This wine channels warm summer days filled with BBQ on the patio, and it has the structure to pair with holiday fare. This fall, it earned best of class at the fifth annual Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition.
