Dominio del Aguila Picaro Clarete 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2013 Pícaro Clarete is clearly not a rosé (but it's pink-colored); it's a wine produced with a blend of red and white grapes, and aged in barrel for some 16 months following the profile of the traditional wines of Aranda de Duero from yesteryear. Even if it's hard to believe, this wine is still too young; I had the chance to taste the 2012 and it now smells and tastes like a white wine (I showed it blind to a friend and he said it was a white), with incredible minerality. It still has some red fruit in the nose and it will develop greatly in bottle, and show its minerality that for now is only perceivable on the palate, where the acidity is lively and the finish is so tasty it turns almost salty. In the long run, this might surpass the 2012, but to drink today, I prefer the 2012...92+" Luis Gutierrez, WA 10/15 "Gorgeous aromas of crushed blackberries, raspberries and lemon peel. Full body, yet refined and polished tannins. Mostly tempranillo co-fermented with garnacha and bobal. old vines. Superb finish. Great wine...94" JS 7/15

It looks like a rose but drinks more like a light red wine. Vibrant acidity, bright red cherry, peach jolly rancher, a bit of rhubarb and a fairly long finish. This is a Spanish blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Bobal and Albillo.
