Best Buy! This Walla Walla winery relies on estate plantings along the Columbia River — its namesake vineyard and Wallula Vineyard near McNary Dam — for this easily attained bargain. It offers a rich amber color and fun aromas of Pixy Stix grape candy and jasmine backed by lemon curd on toast. As a partially barrel-fermented Chardonnay for nine months, it’s a rather voluptuous drink reminiscent of an Orange Julius that’s finished with jasmine mint tea.
