Barnard Griffin Rose of Sangiovese 2012
Rosé from Columbia Valley, Washington
Distinctive, fragrant nose of ripe strawberries and tangerines. Boasts fresh, zippy acidity while retaining elegance and finesse. Wonderful hints of maraschino cherry and candied orange peel chime in on the long, expansive finish. Taste for yourself why our dry, food-friendly Roses have found many fans over the years.
A perennial best-of-show winner, this lush take on rosé bursts with pretty cherry fruit, light touches of brioche and fresh-baked rolls. It finishes with a kiss of spice. Best Buy

Barnard Griffin Winery was established in 1983 by Winemaker Rob Griffin and his wife, Deborah Barnard. Rob saw the opportunity to make great wine in Washington and moved north in 1977. Pleased with his move to Washington, he says "The northern latitude of Washington and the ideally drained sandy soils of the Columbia Valley make it possible to produce deeply concentrated wines of pronounced character."
