Wine of the week: 2016 Disruption rose 

Columbia Valley, Washington

Retail $12

Rose wines are becoming more popular, and imports have doubled in the past five years, according to Wine Spectator. Domestic roses also are gaining fans, and U.S. wineries are producing some well-structured, easy-drinking versions. This wine from Washington's Columbia Valley is produced by newcomer Disruption Wine Company. Winemaker and co-owner Andrew Latta worked as a sommelier in Southeast Asia, where he became familiar with the wines of the world. He worked as a cellar hand for a decade in Washington's Walla Walla region. Disruption sources fruit from high-quality vineyards in the state. A blend of 64 percent syrah, 17 percent cinsault, 11 percent grenache and 8 percent mourvedre grapes is pressed and fermented with native yeasts. In the glass, the wine offers intense citrus and raspberry aromas. On the palate, taste red berries, good acidity and minerality. Drink it with barbecue, melons and other fruit, salads, egg dishes, boiled seafood and many other foods. Buy it at: Costco Wholesale.
