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!

Although El Coto is a relatively young Bodega, it is already one of the Rioja Qualified Designation of Origin (D.O.Ca) leaders.

Light but focused, this red has fresh cherry, berry, leafy and licorice notes, with lively acidity, gentle tannins, and a juicy finish. Drink now. 25,000 cases imported. -TM The 2008 vintage of El Cotos entry level Crianza is a blockbuster! This 100% Tempranillo shows layers of fresh raspberries, cherry, cedar and spice typical of a classically styled Rioja. This is all wrapped up in a vanilla and leather laiden package that is medium in body and sports a long, soft finish. Always a good value! - Winery

Raspberry and plum aromas are fresh with a hint of sharpness. This defines zesty and crisp; the acidity level is high, which is common for 2008s, but there's enough body and power to support red-berry and vanilla flavors. A cleansing, fresh finish closes things out. - M.S. This juicy red offers fresh and focused flavors of black cherry and plum, accented by light toast and spice notes that linger on the finish. Features light tannins and balanced acidity. Drink now through 2015. 1,500 cases imported. -TM

Lengthy maceration with the skins followed by extended aging in American oak barrels has created a firm, well-structured wine with notes of wild strawberry and vanilla.
