This dry sparkling rosé was made with organically-grown Willamette Valley Pinot noir grapes! With rosé wine skyrocketing in popularity over the last several years, it’s no surprise that their prices have risen as well. Finding one this well-priced, using pesticide-free Pinot noir (the most expensive fruit), grown in the priciest wine region in Oregon… WITH bubbles, was like stumbling upon a unicorn! Strawberries, rhubarb, and bing cherries were balanced by good acidity, soft bubbles, and a strawberry candy finish. I suggest buying several bottles before the winery– an excellent steward of the land– sells out!
