2004 Bodegas y Vinedos Monfil Crianza Carinena

($15) Medium red. Spicy red berry scents, with brighter mineral and orange zest nuances adding energy. Light and crisp, showing tangy redcurrant, strawberry and blood orange flavors reminiscent of pinot noir. There are no apparent tannins here to get in the way of the zesty fruit, which carries through the brisk finish. Very light in body: I had weightier rosados this year.
