Wind Rose Cellars 2013 Bravo Rosso Red Table Wine, Washington, $22

By on March 9, 2017

Olympic Peninsula winemaker David Volmut continues his tradition of success with this Italian-themed blend. Barbera (52%), Primitivo (24%), Nebbiolo (4%) and Dolcetto (2%) get a Super Tuscan-type influence from Cabernet Sauvignon (18%), and the blend spent 20 months in 30 percent new French oak. As a result, the nose is bright and spicy with cherry and raspberry, joined by rose petal. The drink is quite smooth and balanced as juicy flavors of cherry and Marionberry carry on into a trail of chocolate. Volmut offers this at his tasting room in Sequim, online at his site and via Amazon, and he pairs it with pizza, pasta, risotto and fajitas.
