One of Washington’s most overlooked vineyards is Rosebud, a third-generation planting spanning 400 acres near Mattawa with winery customers in three states. In previous years, they’ve grown Platinum-winning Tempranillo, and they’ve done the same for the Seal and Hussey families at Sigillo — which is seal in Italian and pronounced see-GEE-low. It’s perfumy, plummy, spicy, juicy and bold with blackberry, plum, cayenne pepper and black tea at the core. Awards: Savor NW (best of class/gold).
