Howling Bluff routinely bleeds off its top pinot noir and that juice ends up in the rose stream. It’s not the perfect route to rosé, but if it’s not the focus at the winery, it is what it is. The nose is pleasant enough with sweet cherries over a light herbal character. The attack is similar, full-bodied and stuffed with sweet strawberry that is balanced by a linear run of citrus. The slightly watery finish has more underlying herbal notes. Ready to drink. --Anthony Gismondi
