A pair of acid-driven reds that tend to do well as rosé — Gamay Noir and Cabernet Franc — are made into a Provence-style field blend by Kevin Cedergreen. The Gamay (60%) from Skyline Vineyard in the Yakima Valley and Cab Franc from Melody Lynne Vineyard in the Yakima River Canyon were co-fermented into a refreshing drink. Clean aromas of red currant, strawberry-rhubarb compote and quince make their way into flavors of white peach, quince and apricot. While light on its feet and bone-dry, the return of currant in the back makes for a lovely finish. Enjoy with a fruit plate, smoked trout or a ham sandwich.
