RJ Wines 2017 Boushey Vineyards Beyond the Pale Unmarked Rosé, Yakima Valley, $22
Rachel Joy graduated from University of Massachusetts with a chemistry degree and has spent the past dozen years working from Sonoma to Napa to New Zealand to Maui for at a list of wineries that include the likes of Trinchero and the Sebastiani family. Last year, she put roots down in Woodinville and invested in renowned Boushey Vineyards for her first release under her RJ Wines brand, a rosé made from Syrah. It’s presented in a Provence style with a pleasing salmon/blood orange color and aromas of golden raspberry, cherry skins, rose hips and tangerine pith. Inside, it’s refreshing as flavors of pink strawberry and nectarine lead into a finish of kumquat, orange peel and more golden raspberry. She’s already earned placement at Purple Café, PCC Community Markets and Full Pull Wines.
