Anam Cara Cellars 2017 Nicholas Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir, Chehalem Mountains, $22

By on May 11, 2018

For years, Dundee, Ore., winemaker Michael Collier has been crafting the wines for Nick and Sheila Nicholas, who in 2001 began to transform 33 acres of untamed bramble and orchards into prized cool-climate vineyards near the town of Newberg. Their rosé from Pinot Noir opens with an inviting pink raspberry color and leads to a theme of cassis, watermelon, raspberry and dusty violets. The finish of Ruby Red grapefruit pith and minerality imparts a bone-dry elegance.

Rating: Excellent
