Barnard Griffin Rose of Sangiovese 2021, Columbia Valley, Washington

Founded in 1983 by Rob Griffin and Deborah Barnard, Barnard Griffin has been producing award winning wines for over 30 years. Barnard Griffin Winery is situated in south-central Washington at the confluence of the Yakima, Columbia, and Snake Rivers, in the heart of Washington State’s wine country. 2020 – “I would be remiss not to mention the human factors that appeared through-out 2020’s harvest; an ongoing pandemic (have you heard of it?) and wildfires tore through the Pacific Northwest, cloaking our region in smoke. Fortunately, we were already wearing masks… In the end, we made it through both unscathed – with a healthy cellar team and grapes that came in without a touch of smoke taint. Is this what they call luck? 2020 Rose – Beautifully crafted, juicy, bright and flavorful. Bucket loads of strawberry, melon and pineapple flavors practically leap out of the glass. Dry with racy, vibrant acidity. Discover the amazing versatility of this refreshing, food-friendly Rosé. ” – Rob Griffin – Head Winemaker.
