First we need to say that this rosé was the prettiest shade of pink in our glasses! It’s a happy color and hopefully this wine makes you just as happy as it did us. Made by skilled second generation winemaker Wynne Peterson-Nedry, this wine really reflects her personality! It’s fun and fruity but also layered and jazzy, whereas you might say Wynne is a blend of goofy fun and nerdy scientist. Winerabbler Michele loves finding wines that match their makers.

This rosé was filled to the brim with cranberries, raspberries and bing cherries. Then the layers kicked in and we tasted hints of bubblegum and black pepper with a lemon zest finish. The winery’s tasting notes mention powdered kool-aid and after we read that, we could taste it too.

Pair this wine with friends lounging by the pool, sunshine, concerts in the park as well as a summer berry spinach salad or fried chicken.

    I had a chance to try Chehalem’s Rose a couple weeks ago and really loved all the flavors that it had going on. A perfect summer sipper!
