Mill Lane Winery NV Rhubarb-Cranberry Wine, Washington, $18
Few, if any, wineries in the Northwest offer as much variety among nongrape wines as Dan and Deana Ferris, who recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of their South Puget Sound Winery in the Olympia, Wash., suburb of Tenino. In this case, Dan, the winemaker and a longtime basketball official, hauls in cranberries from a bog in nearby Rochester and blends in rhubarb for a bright, clean and tasty patio wine. Aromas of strawberry, rhubarb and cranberry are joined by fascinating hints of Douglas fir spear tip tea. They lead to fruit-forward flavors dominated strawberry candy and a steady pulse of cranberry, backed by ample acidity to balance to the 3% residual sugar. This spring, it earned a silver medal at the 2018 Capital Food and Wine Festival Wine Competition.
