2020 J.C. Somers Vintner Whole Lotta rosé

Oregon

13.0% alcohol

Empty bottle weight: 17.9 ounces / 508 grams

Cork closure 

Made mostly using red grapes grown at the Garnier Vineyard, which overlooks the mighty Columbia River and the Washington basalt cliffs, this rosé can best be described as a whole lotta fun! A blend of three varietals; Grenache, Syrah, and Tempranillo, don’t let the wine’s paleness throw ya, it’s chockfull of dry tartness. Jay Somers is a seasoned winemaker so don’t be surprised if, after you taste one of his wines, you find yourself seeking out them vintage after vintage.

Color:

Just a hint of salmon pink

Bouquet:

This wine had aromas, including sour cherries and cranberries, that made my mouth water as I smelled it. I also detected mineral notes of wet stone and fresh rain as I swirled my glass.

Palate:

Tart cranberries and lemons opened into flavors of underripe strawberries, red raspberries, and pink lady apples. With a tart, clean finish, this rosé went down really easy so I suggest pacing yourself after you open the bottle or buy several bottles to enjoy as the weather warms.

Food pairing suggestions:

Shrimp ceviche, endive boats with goat cheese, pomegranate seeds and crushed pistachio nuts, Thai noodle salad.
