With balanced acidity and a smooth mouthfeel, this wine pairs perfectly with balsamic salads, wood-fired pizza, charcuterie boards, and bruschetta. It's easy to pair and robust enough to serve on its own, making it perfect for parties.

With only a 12% ABV, this light wine is ideal for sipping. The Single-Vineyard accolade means the grapes (Syrah) come from one vineyard (in this instance, a vineyard on the sunny hills of Washington). 

Aromas of strawberry, cream, and Bosc pear lead to flavors of red fruit, rose hip, peach, and minerals. Dry, with a tart, crisp quality, this wine is perfect for wine beginners wanting to dip their toes into the world of single-origin rosés.
