Scores and Tasting Notes

Delicately, faint pink Rosé! Fresh, with hints of melon, fresh berries and dare I say cut hay? Beautifully perfumed. Honeysuckle, strawberry, cherry and resounding minerality that leads to an enchanting finish. –Winemaker Charles Smith

92 Points – James Suckling

“This is really serious with pumice, steel and dried-strawberry character. It’s full-bodied, yet fresh and formed with a long, driven finish. Serious sangiovese-based rosé. Drink now. Screw cap.”

90 Points – Jeb Dunnuck (Formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate) (v2018)

“From 100% Sangiovese mostly from the Wahluke Slope, the 2018 ViNO Rose offers a knock-out bouquet of strawberry and Jolly Rancher to go with a juicy, balanced, delicious style on the palate. It’s a rocking rosé.”

90 Points – Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate) (v2017)

“The medium gold/salmon colored 2017 ViNO Sangiovese Rosé offers a vibrant, strawberry and cherry-scented bouquet as well as a rounded, supple, nicely textured style. With both racy acidity and a fleshy, textured, salty style on the palate, it’s a versatile rosé to drink over the coming 6-12 months.”

Vineyards

Washington State Red Wine; 100% Sangiovese, 12.0% Alcohol

Art Den Hoed (72%): Located in lower Yakima Valley, this site is unique because it sits at 1300 ft. in elevation, making it one of the cooler vineyards in the area with excellent air drainage.

Fox Vineyard (28%): Located on the Wahluke Slope, this site is made up of two distinct types of soils. The first being loamy, fine sand deposited by ancient glacial floods. The other half is made up of pre-ancient soils of caliche and basalt.

The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Vintage

The 2019 vintage was on the cooler side as it started slow with later-than-usual bud break and continued on to be fairly moderate throughout the year. Some vineyards had issues with an October freeze a bit earlier than usual, but our high-elevation vineyards have great air drainage which allows us to extend the growing season late into October without freeze. This yielded fantastic ripening and some awesome wines with incredible balance and character. Overall, we are excited about the wine produced in 2019, which has brought us more finesse, incredible flavors and lovely balance.
