Reales Viñedos 2016 Rosado

Spain (no Denominación de Origen); 13.5% ABV
imported by Quintessential, LLC, Napa, CA
$4 at the Richmond, CA, store on 18 Aug

GLPease recommended this rosé, so I was glad to try it.  It is very good for the low price.  The flavor starts with nice cantaloupe and red berries with some sweetness of fruit, moves into some white (maybe slightly green) melon, and finishes with balancing tartness and bitterness, and a little sort of chalk-dust minerality.  It stayed good and tasty for a few days.

This bottle was courtesy of Sopheap Yin at the Richmond store.

    I found this at the SODO GO in Seattle, and agree that it is very nice, especially at the price point. Mouthwatering acidity and enough bright strawberry fruit to make me wish summer could last forever.
