J. Bookwalter 2019 Couse Creek Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

Editors' Choice

This wine is made in a Beaujolais Nouveau style—100% whole cluster with cool carbonic maceration, aged two weeks on skins, and released the Thursday before Thanksgiving. However, it brings a whole lot more seriousness and staying power than many of the wines that inspired it. The aromas pop, with appealing notes of strawberry, dried herbs and stem. The palate is light, fresh and juicy, fleshing out over time. It's a complete delight, and a dynamite example of this variety to boot. Sean P. Sullivan
