2011 Monte Castrillo Rosado, Finca Torremilanos (Peñalba Lopez, Bodega)
Bodega Peñalba Lopez, Monte Castrillo Rosado, Finca Torremmilanos, Ribera del Duero, Spain, 2011100% Tempranillo CANDIED CHERRY AND GUARANA, VERY FRESH! The younger Tempranillo vines (12-15 years!) are the source for this dry rosado. The limestone soils contribute the dry minerality flavors we love. Look at that color! Bright cherry red with all the cherry/raspberry fruit you can stuff in the bottle. The finish is very long with a slight herbal edge and wonderfully drying acidity. We think we taste a little orange peel with the finish. Do you? Serving Suggestion: Tangy fruit salad with a little balsamic vinegar and mint; a grilled salmon burger with oregano and basil pesto on the bun.
