Seattle Times - Bargain Bottles that Taste Rich
In his 2019 list of the 25 best Northwest wines $20 or less, Andy Perdue toasts bargain bottles that taste rich:
MY LONGTIME FRIEND Bob Woehler, the dean of Washington wine writers, who passed away in 2011, was known for sniffing out bargains. He loved nothing more than finding a delicious wine at a great price.
Bargain Bob was my inspiration when I put this list together: wines that cost $20 or less, whose quality exceeds their price tag.
Nine Hats Wines 2018 Julia’s Dazzle Rosé, Columbia Valley, $18: We tend to think of pinot gris as a white grape, but it does have a tint of red that makes the resulting wine a bit pink. This sister label for Long Shadows turns it into a delicious and affordable rosé packaged in a cool bowling pin bottle.
