RiverAerie 2008 Rose, on our list of the Top 10 Barbecue Wines


RiverAerie 2008 Rosé
Columbia Valley, Washington

RiverAerie's practice of saignée, or bleeding, on its Syrahs provides a collateral benefit of producing a small amount of beautifully-colored juice for its rosé wine. This Columbia Valley, Washington wine is light and fragrant with aromas of berries and cassis. On the palate, flavors of fresh red fruits mingle with hints of cinnamon and anise.

Rating: 12/20
Price: $12
