Vivid orange-pink. Assertive raspberry, cherry and candied rose scents reveal a hint of smokiness. Shows good depth to the juicy red fruit flavors, which turn deeper and spicier with aeration. The floral note repeats on a nicely persistent finish that shows good clarity and tangy cut. Made via direct pressing and in all stainless steel. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2019)

First Tempranillo based rose for me. Very good. Nice minerals. Paired beautifully with the Tapas at Jaleo at the Cosmopolitan.

What's not to like! Great strawberry, fresh spring leaves, lemongrass, strangely like Sauv Blanc and great med + acidity and a savory palate that still retains the lively fruit characters.

Yowsa! Talk about fresh... This smells a bit like pungent SB, but is actually 100% Tempranillo. 2014 vintage from Bodegas Arrocal, Ribera Del Duero.
Disclaimer: I import it.

Very aromatic! Nice complexity, really long finish. Lends itself to slow sipping. Beautiful light red color, not orangey. Fruity, balanced. ABV 13. $48 at Vidalia's with tasting dinner. National Academy meeting 2016.
