Alexana Winery 2016 Rosé of Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $28

By on November 12, 2017

Bryan Weil doesn’t rush his rosé of Pinot Noir to market, choosing to age the product of dry-farmed vineyards in the Dundee Hills and Chehalem Mountains inside neutral French oak barrels for four months. And yet, the wood doesn’t get in the way. Soft floral aromas of rose petals, strawberries and cranberries lead to flavors of more strawberry and raspberry candy.

Rating: Outstanding!
