Wine of the Week - Carivintas "Lola Lu" 2011 Rosé


This is a deceptively good wine. It didn't strike me at first, but it grew on me. A blend of 80% Tempranillo, 12% Syrah, and 8% Malbec.

Apple skin and light strawberries on the nose. The taste up front is grade seeds. Overall, it's light, crisp, with some mild sourness. Refreshing, and nice for a warm summer evening.

I was pretty unimpressed at first, then found myself compulsively sipping it and realizing I could finish the whole bottle very quickly if I didn't keep myself in check. Very nice.

13.9% alcohol
