One of Oregon’s flagship productions of rosé from Pinot Noir, this vintage also marked the promotion of Ben Howe to director of winemaking operation. The growth of this rosé program is reflected on the label, which indicates Howe worked with growers beyond the Dundee Hills. There’s complexity to its theme of dried strawberry, red currant and cranberry, which offers some watermelon richness on the midpalate on the way to a finish of blood orange and golden raspberry. While the 2019 vintage is just around the corner, this remains deliciously available.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 14,000 cases

Alcohol: 12.5%
