A Best Buy
The Tempranillo and Garnacha used to craft this rosÚ were hand-picked from terraced vineyard sites situated at the foot of the Tolo˝o Mountains in an area known as the Sonsierra. The region is marked by hills and valleys that offer pockets of unique aspect and exposure allowing the winemakers a range of nuanced expressions to work with in their final blends. Expect a bright and fruity wine with floral, citrus and herb tones. A tremendous value and a fine barbecue wine, it will pair well with everything from grilled sausages to salads. Price $ 12.95
