2019 Barnard Griffin Sangiovese Rose – Double Gold Again

The Barnard Griffin Sangiovese Rose is one of America’s most awarded dry roses! We’re not sure how Rob Griffin, does it, but for the 13th time since 2006, his Rose of Sangiovese took home a gold medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. In fact, this year’s rendition took Double Gold!

This dry rose from Washington’s Columbia Valley is in fine form again this year. It showcases bright, crisp and refreshing flavors and I recommend you stock up for warm weather, sunny day porch, pool, and beach sipping.

I’ve had several requests for dry rose features and I listen to my customers. And high quality rose is being produced everywhere now…..not just in France. In fact, Rob Griffin and his wife Deborah Barnard have been making this highly satisfying pink wine for nearly 20 years. And every year, it takes a gold medal or better at the SF Chronicle Wine Competition, one of the most respected wine competitions in the country.

Let’s get one thing straight here, this is not White Zinfandel. No disrespect to White Zin, the sweet pink wine made popular by the likes of Sutter Home and Beringer, but most rose drinkers these days prefer a much drier styled wine. And that’s exactly what you get here. With some of the red berry character of a red wine but more of the zesty and crisp nuance of a white wine, this is what you want to be drinking this spring and summer.

Every year, people ask me how this year’s release is and I answer the same very year — a little different than last year’s but just as delicious. And I’ll say the same about the 2019 vintage — it’s delightful and dangerously drinkable. Flowing with notes of freshly picked strawberry, watermelon, melon rind, pomegranate and citrus zest, it finishes dry, tangy and vibrant. Perfect for just about any occasion that involves sunshine and warm weather, you’ll go crazy for this ideal spring/summer wine.

Enjoy with grilled chicken, salads, or a simple goat cheese and baguette spread. But save a bottle for when the local tomatoes start rolling in — enjoy this one with a caprese salad and thank me later.
