Wine of the Week - Carivintas 2010 "Rocket" Rosé of Tempranillo

Smells of fresh-cut grass, which I often get from rosés, as well as sour candy and a little bit of foot-odor funk (which, again, does not mean there's anything wrong with the wine, and doesn't usually have an effect on the taste).
On the tongue, there's a mixed sensation happening here.  The wine has some bite to it; so much so that it could almost be mistaken for being semi-sparkling (it feels a little bit like bubbles on your tongue).  But at the same time, this wine is somehow flat; just sort of bland and uninteresting.  A mediocre wine, probably overpriced for its quality.
13.9% alcohol
