  • El Coto de Rioja Rioja Rose 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The nose is driven by fruity aromas of watermelon and lemon. Palate is clean and zesty, very light and soft but with nice watermelon, lemon, just-picked strawberry flavors and a light herbal note to finish. Simple but clean and easy to drink. Read More
