91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2008

($13; 60% garnacha, 30% viura and 10% tempranillo) Pale pink. Impressively complex nose offers redcurrant, wild strawberry, blood orange and white flowers. Clean and sharply focused, with pure red berry flavors and a suave mineral undertone. For the money, I can't think of a more elegant and lithe pink wine on the market.

But no sourness appears as it warms slightly, and it remains pleasantly aromatic and drinkable. Great for sipping on a beach with a classic Russian novel.
