Trust Cellars 2008 Rosé of Cabernet Franc Columbia Valley

In the glass, the Trust 2008 Rosé of Cabernet Franc Columbia Valley (13.4%) is a light salmon red color, delivering black fruit notes to the nose with a hint of earthiness as well. Blackberry and currant flavors were balanced with good acidity and a very slight sweetness on the finish.

We paired the Trust rosé with grilled teriyaki pork chops, asparagus and steamed rice. At $16, the Trust Cellars rose offers a good price-to-quality ratio. I was pleased this Washington rosé was light, crisp, and bright, the kind of rosé we enjoy drinking in the summertime.

Couldn't agree more. Just tasted this rose last weekend in Walla Walla and was pleasantly surprised. Love the label too! If you get a chance, try Sleight of Hand's rose. Best American rose I've had. Cheers!

Thanks for the suggestion, Jared. I will definitely keep an eye out for Trey's rose.
