For decades, this iconic Oregon property featured illustrations by Ginny Adelsheim on the label. Starting with this bottling, winemaker Gina Hennen’s flagship rosé of Pinot Noir will spotlight work by an emerging local artist, beginning with Lettie Jane Rennekamp. The light salmon color of the rose doesn’t clash with Rennekamp’s illustration. Enticing aromas of cotton candy, strawberry and dusty nectarine led into a remarkably balanced and clean wine from start to finish as flavors strawberry-rhubarb compote and peach lead out with a racy little finish of kumquat. 

Rating: Outstanding!
