Aromas of pear, rhubarb-strawberry jam and clove lead to flavors of Honeycrisp apple, Rainier cherry and a hint of ripe pear. It’s all backed by bright acidity. This won best rosé at the fourth annual Walla Walla Valley Wine Competition, a scholarship competition that benefits future winemakers by providing funds for viticulture and enology students at Walla Walla Community College.
