Drawing on vines from near the Bickford family’s bucolic tasting room, Hood River native Rich Cushman crafted a wine with the bouquet of wild roses, spice and tropical fruit that resolves in the mouth into an appealing sipper with flavors of pink grapefruit, more spice and just-right acidity perfect to accompany that holiday bird or sweet and sour Asian fare. It earned a gold medal at the 2020 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
