This Italian grape continues to grow its audience throughout the Northwest as a serious rosé, and the Roberts family shows that it does deliciously well with a bit of bottle age. Fanciful aromas of cantaloupe, dusty peach, marshmallow, dried orange peel make their way to the palate with a bright and brisk approach that’s capped by tangerine pith. Enjoy with the Triple Fish Tacos or Wild Garlic Grilled Cheese sandwich at Westport’s Sea Glass Grill. Award: East Meets West (double gold).
