We opened this rhubarb smelling rose tonight and it became, yet another reason, why I love this winery! This rose is fruit forward and a little tart. My husband describes the nose as rhubarb, nutmeg and cinnamon. As Harbinger puts it, “reminds us all why rose is the #1 selling wine in France.”
Harbinger wines are fresh, unique, and delicious (plus the story behind the winery is fascinating!) The tasting room at Harbinger is one of my favorites in Washington. It’s in a converted logging truck shop with galvanized metal siding with kayaks on one wall and comfy chairs made out of wine barrels. The space is wide open with neat wooden beams. And all the wines are great to try! Some of my most favorites are their dessert wines.
I would describe this wine as plum delicious-ness, with a little bit of leather on the nose. The Harbinger 2006 El Jefe is a ‘Traditional Rhone-style Red blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre.” It’s not your average red table wine.
