Staff Wine Review – GoodCheapBooze.com
This is a very dry rosé made from the famous Spanish Rioja grape. Not as much depth or complexity as the French style but a tasty enough wine at this price if you like the European approach. Remember rosé wines have nothing in common with white zinfandels and if that is what you are expecting, you will be very disappointed. Enjoy this one with Gruyère and goat cheeses and artisan charcuterie.
