Harry & David Vineyards 2017 Pinot Noir Rosé, Oregon, $18
This historic producer of prized orchard fruit in Southern Oregon works with a variety of Rogue Valley winemakers on its emerging wine portfolio. In this case, the collaboration is with Herb Quady and Brian Gruber of Barrel 42 in Medford, a tandem that crafts some of the Northwest’s top rosés. While it is rather demure in terms of color, this rosé from Pinot Noir is otherwise quite expressive. Aromas of Rainier cherry, strawberry-banana nectar and orange Creamsicle lead to pleasant flavors of Montmorency cherry and blood orange. The bright structure of cherry skin tannin and orange oil is capped with Limeade. Suggested pairings include cured meats, seafood and light salads. It merited a silver medal at the 2018 Oregon Wine Competition.
