Drink of the Week: Del Rio Grenache Rosé

del rio grenache roseIn a sea of pink wine, the 2017 Grenache Rosé from Del Rio Vineyards in Oregon’s Rogue River Valley is a standout. Made solely from estate-grown grapes, the Del Rio Grenache Rosé was left on the skins for 48 hours, imparting a pale pink hue that belies the structure and complexity of the wine. A heady aroma of peaches and rose blossom is followed by flavors of strawberry and citrus, balanced by a stony, slightly savory finish. It’s a food-friendly wine that can complement almost anything on the table, and it’s a delicious reminder that pink wine can pack a serious punch of flavor. $17, delriovineyards.com.
