Ryan Patrick Wines 2016 Rosé Wine, Columbia Valley, $15

By on January 8, 2018

This dry and delightful Provence-style rosé is heavy on Syrah, but also includes dollops of Cinsault, Grenache and Mourvèdre. It exudes aromas and flavors of pomegranate, cranberry, fresh raspberry and a pinch of savory herbs. This earned a gold medal and best in class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine Awards. The prior vintage won a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia International Wine Competition, so there’s a pedigree to this project by Butch Milbrandt.
