2006 Bodegas Faustino Faustino V Rosado Rioja

($13) Light pink. Zesty raspberry and cherry on the nose, with a brisk citrus peel quality adding verve. Clean, vibrant red berry and orange flavors are brightened by dusty mineral notes on the dry, lip-smacking finish. An excellent aperitif-styled rosado that I find embarrassingly easy to drink.
