Best Buy! Southern Idaho winemaker James Holesinsky celebrated the 20th anniversary of his eponymous project in 2021, and he and chemist/wife Caitlin, are producing the best wines in the history of the Hagerman Valley brand. This project with Syrah from nearby Gertschen Vineyard leads to an expressive rosé that’s filled with watermelon, golden raspberries and spice in the nose. Inside, it’s beautiful with kiwi, mango and nectarine flavors, capped by delicious acidity, a combination that lifted this atop the rosé category at this year’s Platinum. Awards: Drink Pink Vino International Rosé Competition (gold), American Fine Wine Competition The Rosé Competition (gold).

Rating: Double Platinum, 99 points
