I really tried to love this wine, but I think it just didn't have the right context at the party I brought it to. A funky rosado that is extremely complex. Would love to try again with very few, if any other people around....

    Really? I am the only person to review this wine? Really? C'mon Snooth-folks... you disappoint. This is a great wine and actually quite a nice wine to go with a variety of foods (we drank it with a 10-course meal recently (amongst other things)). Did I say "nice"? I meant "unusual". The latest vintage is 1998 (in 2009). It's a rose'. It gets a lot of oxygen and ages in huge old barrels. My first reaction is that it tastes like sherry, but with a note of red fruit. Good amount of body and slightly high acidity. Nutty (white fleshy nuts) with a hint of fresh fruit about mid-palate. Oh, and the label is just awesome. A really distinctive and handsome label. And being that it's had a good bit of exposure to oxygen, it seems pretty indestructible.

    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.
