2014 vintage

  • Review: VINOUS Jan-2016
  • 90 rating “Light, bright pink. Intense aromas of fresh red berries and rose oil, with suggestions of white pepper and dusty minerals adding vivacity. Spicy and incisive on the palate, offering tangy redcurrant and strawberry flavors and a touch of bitter orange zest. The long, red fruit-driven finish is clean, nervy and focused, with no excess fat. There’s serious bang for the buck here.”

2017 vintage

  • Review: The Wine Advocate, Issue #234 December 2017. Vintage 2017
  • 89  Rating.The perfumed and peachy 2017 Rosado was bottled in October 2017 with more Garnacha in the blend than in previous years, almost a blanc de noirs, without skin contact. It has a pale bright-pink color, a fruit-driven nose, with notes of berries and a hint of roses, and a very tasty palate with a pleasant bitterness in the finish.”

 

  • Review: VINOUS Magazine, June 2018. 
  • 90  Rating.Lurid orange-pink. Vibrant, expansive strawberry and tangerine aromas, carry a suave floral overtone. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering gently sweet red fruit flavors that become livelier with aeration. Smoothly blends depth and energy and finishes long and sappy, featuring a building floral echo and spicy jolt of white pepper. This pink wine has the richness to work with full-flavored foods and the nerviness to enjoy all by itself. It’s an outstanding value to boot.”
