More rosé. Yay!
This one comes from Rioja, Spain, which is probably the most well-known Spanish wine region in the US. It’s a region that lies at the confluence of the Pacific, Mediterranean and continental climate influences in Spain.
The wine from El Coto is made from 50% Garnacha from an estate named “Los Almendros” Ausejo (Rioja Baja) and 50% Tempranillo from Rioja Alavesa. The “Los Almendros” estate is land that was previously used for almond groves, hence the name.
The nose on this wine has a spectacular rose aroma, along with raspberry and strawberry. The palate is quite tasty too, offering strawberry and ripe black cherry flavors up front, evolving into a squeeze of lime and a dash of pepper on the finish. The acidity is sufficient, and the mouth feel is good. This would go beautifully with spicy Thai food.
Not only is this a very tasty rosé, but it’s also a great value, with a price of only ten bucks!
