Victor Palencia makes some of the region’s tastiest off-dry pink wines for Jones of Washington, so it’s natural for him to do the same with the Jones family’s Two Gun Vineyards for his own young label that’s launched at the Walla Walla airport incubator complex. It’s loaded with strawberries, cherries and peaches from front to finish. Despite the sweet approach, there’s a clarity of fruit as tangerine acidity keeps up and a hint of rosemary in the background for complexity.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 117 cases

Alcohol: 11.2%
