Each spring, the brilliance of Walla Walla Valley winemaker Casey McClellan is on display with one of the Pacific Northwest’s classiest examples of rosé. He pulls from the McClellan Estate Vineyard, denHoed and Gamache, staying true to his tradition by focusing on Cabernet Franc (77%) while blending in Malbec (13%) and Petit Verdot. Understated elegance starts with a pale watermelon wardrobe as nose-tickling hints of pink strawberry, raspberry, rose petal and saffron are matched in the palate. A touch of voluptuousness at the midpoint, a sign of the Petit Verdot (10%), creates complexity before a close of bright red fruit flavors.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 2,100 cases
