Best Buy! Trey Busch of Sleight of Hand Cellars and Mark Ryan McNeilly first bonded over rock music. A few years later, they decided to launch The Underground Wine Project in 2009. What started out with 100 cases of red wine they dubbed “Idle Hands” has grown into a project beyond 30,000 cases and involves Kendall Mix at the Wahluke Wine Co. The lion’s share is devoted to Mr. Pink, a Sangiovese-driven rosé that’s bright and chock full of nerve. It’s decidedly Mr. Pink in color, and opens with a nose combining fruit (strawberry, clementine, summer melon), greens (mint, watermelon rind), citrus (orange peel and grapefruit) and subtleties of Aperol bitters. This is a refreshing summer stunner with mouthwatering natural acidity that surges along a lithe frame. It received a gold medal last fall at the Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition in Hood River, Ore.
