Orange-Pink Beacons: Tantalizingly Tasty Roses

So often Oregon rosés miss the mark for us–too fruity, not enough acidity, too expensive, a combination and more. In the seas of just-okay Oregon rosé, these three are orange-pink beacons of light guiding us to shore. Two of them have graced our top rosé list multiple times–Twill and Tim Malone. The third is a newcomer wine from a star winery, Walter Scott. All well under $20, they are tantalizingly tasty, thirst-quenching rosés, no ifs, ands, or buts about it!

Our Walter Scott buddies crushed it just like we crushed our bottle of Bois-Moi. Like the words mean in French, “Drink Me” we will. Inviting red berry and orange, finishing oh-so zesty and dry. 90% Pinot noir from Freedom Hill and Justice vineyards, plus 10% Gamay from Arlyn vineyard.

The best vintage yet of Twill rosé makes your mouth water at first whiff, then treats you to delicious waves of Mandarin orange, peach, fresh mango, passionfruit (yeah, seriously, all of them!). A joy to sip over a sunny afternoon or happy hour.

One of the standout spring releases within the Northwest wine scene, Tim's Columbia Gorge Nebbiolo rosato is so fun, and so refreshingly delightful, it's the kind of crushable rose we drink at home (regularly) and the kind we wholeheartedly recommend. And it's priced like its Old World counterparts, which we appreciate!
