Chehalem Mountains sub AVA
Willamette Valley AVA
he color of pink bubblegum, this rosé is a perfect representation of the 2014 vintage in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. It was a warm growing season and the resulting wines can be described as “fat,” “full bodied,” and “robust.” The weather led to bumper crop conditions and many wineries made more rosé than in previous years. So what does that mean for you? You can still find it in stores and at wineries! And happily, with this summer’s hot temperatures, drinking rosé is an excellent way to stay cool.
The Beckham’s rosé was all ripe strawberries on the nose. But in the mouth is where it really blossomed! The strawberries were there as well as fresh cherries, white pepper and bay leaf. It was layered with mineral notes, a nice mouthfeel, a pleasant fatness on the mid palate and a nice, dry finish. We could go on and on about this rosé… Instead, we encourage you to get some while you can!
As of today, the Beckham’s do have some rosé left to purchase. And the Winerabblers encourage you to set aside a bottle for Thanksgiving dinner too. (So buy an extra bottle and let us know how it goes with your holiday meal.)
