Slightly emollient on the nose with a bit of cream and apricot. Honey flavors with a bit of tea leaf and a light finish. Really interesting wine, but loses half a point for some slight plastic on the nose.

Bubblegum and cherry slush puppie flavors with a slight vegetal kick. Unlike any other rose I have had. As always I paired this rose with middle eastern food. In this case it was a ground lamb pita. yummmy.

I hardly know were to start with this week's Vino selection.  I have been on a search for new wine styles to try and in particular something new to drink on casual occasions.  I think I may have found this with El Coto's Rosado. As girly as drinking a pink wine can seem, don't let the stigmas of Berringer's White Zinfandel turn you off from this wine.  This blend of Grenache and Temperanillo from the Rioja region of spain had a great nose with gamy hints of jerky and the floral musk you might get in your grandmother's perfume.  The first sip was full of watermelon that has been lightly salted, something my grandfather used to do to bring out the sweetness of the watermelon. This wine would be perfect at a late evening barbecue in the middle of summer pairing well with corn on the cob, fruit salad and a fat pork chop.  Please do yourself a favor and give the pink stuff a try (not Pepto) and don't forget to introduce it to your friends!

It's a fine, simple red wine. Nothing special

"El Coto Rioja Rosado 2008 has strawberry and raspberry flavors and a powerful aroma. It is great expression of the grape variety (strawberry sweets and violets)

Bright pink color. Intensely fruity aromas of red cherry (from 50% Garnacha, 50% Tempranillo grapes). Palate is smooth, fresh, fruity and dry.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The El Coto Rioja Rosé is a traditional blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha sourced from estate and other vineyards in the Rioja Alavesa. The wine sees a quick 48 hour maceration on the skins to extract flavor and color followed by a cold fermentation and bottling. The wine has tangy, red cherry aromas with piquant herbal notes and ripe, juicy flavors on the palate. Cleansing acidity helps balance the fruit and helps the long, clean finish." *_screwcap_*
