    June 12, 2014 - 13.5% abv. 100% Garnacha (Grenache) Coral-pink color with transparency. Raspberries and strawberries figure prominently on the flavor palate. The wine is tart and acidic but in a way that makes it food friendly. It gives a hint of strawberry soda but that is not really a putdown as I enjoyed this as a light summer quaffer suitable for picnic or patio. I paired it with ground-beef tacos and a slaw-type salad.

    October 14, 2013 - A light, fruity bouquet, followed by a sharp burst of watermelon and strawberry when you take a sip. An almost harsh acid bite at first, but it mellows over time and leaves a nice lingering finish of rose petals. Definitely holds its own, suggest chicken pot pie or other poultry-based dinner, it goes very well with cranberry sauce!

    August 31, 2013 - Nice bright ruby red color. Lots of fresh strawberries, watermelon and a hint of cherris in the aftertaste. Refreshingly dry. Lots of body that make it a great food wine.

    August 14, 2013 - Good value rosé (rosado) from Spain, from 100% Grenache (garnacha), 13.5% (Grenache rosé is often a tad higher) that drinks very well, and has held up as a 2012.

    Beautiful deep pink watermelon skin color.
    Nose of strawberry, red fruits, citrus
    Tasted at various temps, ranging from overchilled to higher than cellar temp, and shows no flaws.
    Clean and bright in mouth, with strawberry, watermelon Jolly Rancher and a clean finish. Good for summer fare.
