Williamson Vineyards 2016 Dry Rosé, Snake River Valley, $14
Best Buy! It was Greg Koenig who first talked the Williamson family into creating its own brand rather than just selling its fruit, and he’s well into his second decade as their winemaker. Koenig produces this rosé in the saignée method with Syrah from their Sunnyslope Wine District estate and presents it with a gorgeous pink color that comes with aromas of strawberry jam, baked cherry and vanilla cream. There’s plenty of juiciness to the flavors of Rainier cherry and red currant, picking up strawberry fruit leather and finishing with a squirt of golden raspberry. It should be ideal for a slab of rich salmon, and the Williamsons relish it with turkey, a glazed ham or brie.
