The 2021 Rosé Ode to Lulu shows mineral-tinged aromas of red berries, nectarine and citrus zest complemented by herb notes. Silky and energetic on the palate, offering white peach, strawberry and tangerine flavors with delineation and tension. A floral note lingers on the finish. $24.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2022) — 8 hours ago
A blend of 30% Mourvedre, 30% Consult and 40% Syrah. Batroun District.
Pale, rosey pink. This offers a deep nose of crushed wet granite and a suggestion of red fruits. On the palate this offers an energetic, mineral tinged, savory character that echos a few Catalan reds with extended skin/lees contact I've tasted. It seems more about place and soil than fruit and is quite interesting.
My wife described it as 'spicy.' Probably not the best bottle to have been pulled for girl's night!
With more air on day three this shows a dried/crushed rose petal and cardamom note. — 13 days ago
Nose has peaches, white florals, orange zest, raspberries and chalk dust.
Palate has dehydrated strawberry, faint red grapefruit, green melon, chalky minerals (dry) with some salinity on the finish.
A sub-$15 (might have been less, didn't write the price on the label as I generally do...) winner from Costco; I'm not the least disappointed. — 6 days ago
NV (2018 fruit); Last bottle! 🙁 Still delicious and prior notes apply.

Not sure of the varietal(s) in this Spanish Rose’. (Txakoli?) Very little information about this wine on the label of the bottle. Light pink color. Strawberry bubble gum on the nose and pallet. Extremely Fruit forward. Touch of mineral. Hints of RS and CO2. Quite refreshing. — 12 days ago
