Ponzi Vineyards 2016 Pinot Noir Rosé, Willamette Valley, $22

Some of Oregon’s oldest vines — the Ponzi Estate Vineyard planted along the Chehalem Mountains norther foothills in 1970 – and high-elevation sites Dion and Merten come together for Luisa Ponzi’s graceful and bright rosé from Pinot Noir. A 24-hour maceration yielded the light cranberry color, which leads to enticing aromas of fresh-picked strawberry, cherry juice and peaches with cream. On the palate, it’s akin to cranberry sauce, blood orange and raspberries while essentially absent of residual sugar (0.3%).
