83pointsKestrel 2006 Rosé (Columbia Valley (WA))

The winery calls it their melting pot wine—a mongrel blend of seven grapes (half Merlot), done as a saignée. The color is pale cherry red, and though finished dry there's a thick, viscous quality that detracts from the elegance and freshness. There's something untoward in the final flavors, an impression of sour, old orange juice. Paul Gregutt
