Abacela 2017 Estate Grenache Rosé, Umpqua Valley, $18

By on September 7, 2018

The folks at Abacela brought in Grenache from their Fault Line Vineyards to craft this rosé, producing a wine with aromas of pink grapefruit and pie cherry, followed by flavors of the grapefruit joined by red and golden raspberries. With its crisp acidity, it’s a perfect summer complement for small plates, chicken or pork. This won a gold medal at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition and followed that up with a gold medal at the 2018 Oregon Wine Competition.
