This rosé is a huge winner at a fabulous price ($12.00). If only I could find more beautifully made, inexpensive wines like this one from Barnard Griffin. The winery sits where three rivers come together in Washington state, the Yakima, the Snake and the Columbia. Beautiful country, beautiful wine.
This libation made from the Sangiovese grape (native to Italy and a favorite of the Romans) has a sweet strawberry nose, dry berry flavor in the mouth, and honey on the finish. Who could ask for anything more?
