Wow, never had an 11 year old rosé before. Really unique wine. It tastes in some ways like a Rioja lite, with some definite red wine flavors -- a creamy vanilla and some background oak especially. Nose is orange oil and wet stone. Flavor notes are citrus, apricots, and almonds with great minerality. This would have been fabulous with a paella -- but it was good with a mix of traditional tapas.

This rosado has a copper-orange color with gold at the rim and red at the core. The nose is a mesmerizing, ever-changing mosaic of orange, cinnamon, tobacco, and stones. On the palate it shows complex flavors of apricot, pomegranate, cinnamon, butterscotch, and cloves, then becomes delicate and ethereal on the finish.

This truly unique rosado is created (as it always has been) from a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and white Viura. Unlike most roses which are released young, this wine goes through an unusual 4-year aging process in oak before even more aging in bottle prior to release. The result is a unique, orange-hued wine with a mesmerizing sherry-like nose of almonds and hazlenuts, with dried apricots as well as surprising fresh berry flavors and sweet spice. Serve with a slight chill.
