Spanish Rose

Vega Sindoa, Rose 2003 ($8) -- Navarra, Spain (foothills of the Pyrennes). Bodegas Nekeas. 50% Garnacha, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. I thought I would get a jump on Spring by tasting a Rose. (The current conditions outside are 28% with a dusting of snow!) I have had this wine several times and think that there is no better accompaniment to a civilized lunch than a glass of slightly chilled dry rose. This wine has a pale strawberry color, slight flowery nose, delicate fruit flavors with a medium finish and full mouth feel. Delightfully refreshing! Simple and satisfying!
