Drink of the Week: Ponzi Pinot Noir Rosé 2013

From boundary-pushing brewers to award-winning baristas and bartenders, the Pacific Northwest knows its drinks. And when it comes to wine, the region is flush with a diversity of microclimates, grape varietals and soil types. Today’s Drink of the Week—Ponzi’s 2013 Pinot Noir rosé crafted in Oregon’s Willamette Valley—is a perennial favorite for its fresh-fruited flavors of crushed red berries and tropical fruits. The acid is bright, but a kiss of residual sugar lends a lush mouthfeel. Okay, now we’re ready for spring. $20, ponziwines.com
