Wine of the Week - Carivintas "Emmett" 2011 Rosé of Tempranillo


The first thing I noticed on the nose of this wine was a funkiness.  In a good way.  Then came notes of watery tomato and some celery.

Very dry on the tongue.  There's a sharp bite up front that hits you hard.  This wine seemed like it may have been semi-sparkling, but I'm actually not sure; there's a strong possibility that it was just the dryness pinging my taste buds.  The overall taste was reminiscent of ale.  There were notes of lettuce, celery and other light greens.  The quickly-receding finish leaves your mouth feeling refreshed.  Save this one for a mild summer day.

13.9% alcohol
