Waterbrook Sangiovese Rose'

Summer will soon be another memory, so in the mean time I am trying to taste as many roses as possible.

Waterbrook Winery's 100% Sangiovese Rose', from the Candy Mountain in the Columbia Valley, was one of those lovely pink wines. Sangiovese is my favorite grape to make a rose'/rosato out of. Rarely flimsy and always heady with fruit and floral nuances. The deep strawberry flavors of this beautiful pink wine didn't surprise me, but flavors of rhubarb sorbet and the elegant finish of ruby red grapefruit did. A very bright and crisp wine that was pure joy to sip while I dined on an artisanal cheese plate with candied hazelnuts and figs.

Aged and fermented in stainless steel tanks, this classic dry rose is the ultimate summer sipping wine and yet still pairs perfectly with picnique foods.
