Perennial Vintners 2019 Roseus Dry Rosé Wine, Puget Sound, $19

By on September 8, 2021

Grower/certified sommelier Serena Roberge-Gordon joined founder Mike Lempriere’s team on Bainbridge Island in 2016, and her winemaking talents shine with this bright and fun rosé from Pinot Noir Précoce off the nearby Kitsap Peninsula. This early-ripening mutation of Pinot Noir, this variety known in Germany as Frühburgunder is a nice fit for the Puget Sound, and Roberge-Gordon — who sits on the board of the Washington State Wine Commission — creates aromas of pink strawberry and raspberry that make their way to the palate, joined by white peach, cranberry skins and dusty chokecherry. Lempriere suggests serving it with lighter fare.
