93 Points

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 - With my dad - his bottle. My first Rosado. Complex and elegant nose of pomegranate, orange peel, tart strawberry, honey, dried red flowers, and salted nuts. Entry of bright orange peel and tart berry. Very lively and acid driven, pure and focused, as expected. Quite austere and lean, not in a bad way, but will improve with 5-10 more years. Palate shows more orange peel, and then the berry, flower and nut flavors. Powerful but lean finish of orange peel and nuts. What can you say about Lopez - the Tony Gwynn of the wine world - consistent and old school: hit after hit after hit. I mentioned to my dad that if I had tried this wine 15 years ago, I would have never understood it and hated it - but now, for me, the world is Lopez. Nose - 5.5/6, Palate - 5/6, Finish - 5/6, Je Ne Sais Quoi - 1/2 = 16.5/20.
