2017 Cristom Rosé of Pinot Noir
—— 92 points Wine & Spirits —— A salmon-colored pink with scents of strawberry and Rainier cherry, this exuberant rosé leaves an impression of warm sunshine on a field of berries. The texture feels lemon-bright and the strawberry flavors remaining fresh, lifted and persistent through the mouthwatering finish. Happy-making, for summer quaffing. —— The second-ever bottling of this wine, the 2017 Estate Rosé consists of Pinot Noir selected from the Paul Gerrie and Jessie Vineyards. A brief 30 minutes of skin contact before pressing yielded a beautiful salmon, and the resulting wine is a refreshing treat of strawberries, lychee, and watermelon.
