Rotie Cellars, Milton-Freewater OR
And a happy National Rosé Day to you too! Here’s what’s in our glass: Rotie Cellars 2020 Stonewall Rosé. This little number — a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Mourvèdre — from the Walla Walla maker is proud, bright and tart, with green strawberry, grapefruit peel, lemon thyme and apple blossom on the nose. The palate mirrors with citrus, cranberry and a swathe of fruit sweetness in the midpalate, dazzling with acidity throughout the mostly dry sip. Straddling the line between a porch pounder and a think piece, pair this rosé with sunshine, good times, and love + equality for all. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the People of Color Against AIDS Network.
Price: $25 | 11.8% ABV
