El Coto de Rioja Rioja Rose 2013
Editorial Reviews for El Coto de Rioja Rioja Rose
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.
Super intense on the nose with masses of red apple, peach and blueberry aromas. Bright and juicy if barely medium bodied in the mouth, this delivers plenty of orchard fruits supported by bright, pithy citrus flavored acidity and accented with a touch of minerality and a suggestion of sage. There's a nice aromatic peachiness here that pops on the backend along with a little candied edge on the modest finish. 86pts
Soft on the nose and slightly leathery and dusty with a gently stemmy element to the lightly roasted raspberry fruit. A bit soft on entry but nicely broad, this shows off some meaty orchard fruit tones early on. A hint of licorice is joined by slightly dull flavors of strawberry/rhubarb and cooked raspberries. The acidity pops on the finish, lending this more of a strawberry cream profile with decent length. 86pts
Nicely fruity with notes of watermelon and watermelon rind, with hints of banana, grapefruit and flowers. Zesty on entry and nicely light bodied with a good core of red cherry fruit. There’s a touch of mineral, adding some complexity on the palate and a lovely, almost stemmy, herbal tone on the back end. This is a bit simple but very friendly with a nicely fruity finish. 86pts
Dusty and dry o the nose like a parched field with background notes of sweet oak, dried cherries , cocoa vanilla, and some green anise seed like spice. Light and bright on entry with a small wave of sweet fruit following directly behind the bright acidity. This is a perfect medium weight Crianza with a fine balance of red fruit hinting and raspberry and a classic oak underlay. A touch simple on the palate and showing fairly dominant oak induced spiciness on the moderately long finish. Elegant and refined, this is a rather safe, easy drinking Crianza. 86pts

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.
Funky tropical aromas w/ basil, and tomatoes and green peppers on the mouth. Nice mouthfeel, very savory.
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.
Amazingly versatile little wine we have here. I can't think of something this wouldn't go with. I want to buy cases of this and leave them at my pretend summer Hamptons house.
Red berries, mostly strawberry, on the nose. Dry on the palate. Bought it for $10 - good deal. 90 pts.
External Reviews for El Coto de Rioja Rioja Rose
Bright pink. Pungent, herb-accented aromas of cherry and rhubarb, with a spicy topnote. Dense and chewy, with slightly rustic red fruit flavors and a hint of white pepper. Finishes with good, chewy persistence and lingering spiciness.
Auge: helles Lachsrot mit leichtem Violettreflex; Nase: fruchtig, intensive Himbeernote, frisch; Gaumen: mittlerer fruchtbetonter Körper, harmonisch-voller Abgang
Aromas of watermelon and a dusting of vanilla mark the bouquet. On the palate, itandrsquo;s fleshy but still crisp and focused, with nectarine, red apple and strawberry flavors. The finish lasts, with some sweetness.
Exuberant cherry and berry aromas and flavors are joined by a pleasant light earthiness on the palate of this forceful dry rosandeacute;, which has light noticeable tannins and a cherry finish. Drink now.
Fresh as can be, with pure aromas of nectarine and cherry blossoms. The palate is light but refreshing and lithe, with semisweet, punchy flavors of orange, peach and pith. Finishes clean and light in the classic, subtle, utilitarian way that a good Rioja rosé should.
A Viura wine from Rioja in Spain. 2010 El Coto de Rioja Rioja Blanco 750ml

It is a dry, savory, tasty Rose for drinking over the next 12ndash;18 months. It, too, is a solid value.
