elicate salmon pink in color, this rosé is made with premium Pinot noir grapes from the Bjornson Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills of the Willamette Valley. Made by recent Portland transplant Dan Welsh, dare we say it, a rising star in the Portland urban wine scene. And he’s willing to take calculated risks, including making rosé with spendy fruit. We think the odds are in his favor after tasting this rosé!

As we swirled our glasses, we smelled bing cherries and ripe strawberries along with savory notes of fresh rosemary. Sipping this wine, we tasted those same strawberries and cherries, coupled with raw almonds. A fleshy, full mouthfeel for a Pinot noir rosé, this wine is apt to convert those who think they only like red wines into rosé drinkers. Bright and tangy with high acidity, the Welsh Family rosé had a lemon zest finish, making it an excellent wine to drink with a meal.

Pair this rosé with clam chowder, fried chicken or a grilled cheese sandwich stuffed with caramelized onions. The generous acid levels in this wine will cut through the fat in these dishes like a knife through butter. Available at the SE Wine Collective in Southeast Portland.

SRP $28.

    that sounds like it would be divine with strawberries and cream too now that strawberries are back in the farmers market now!

      Melissa, isn’t it though? I think it’s really fun to see all the different colors rosé can be. Cheers, Michele

  7. Wine and a grilled cheese sandwich? That sounds like my kind of meal! I have a no-rose rule, but I’d consider bending it for a pinot noir rose – maybe I’d like it better!

      Catherine- if you’re not a rosé fan, you really ought to try this one. It feels like a red wine and I bet you would like it. And we’re all about bending the rules with wine pairings because you only live once, right? Stay tuned for more grilled cheese and wine suggestions in the future. Cheers, Michele
