Marques de Caceres 2011 Rioja Rosado


I often hear people speak of dry Rosé as a summertime quaffer. But there’s no drink-by-this-date-or-season stamped on pink wines that I’ve seen. I drink dry Rosé as an aperitif any time of year. You’ll find this light, crisp Rosé tastes of strawberries, raspberries, and cranberries. But if you like sweet white Zinfandel, this style certainly won’t appeal to you. I like this while I’m preparing dinner, or as an after-dinner drink when I want another glass but don’t want the high alcohol commonly found in big red wines. It’s a good choice during a party when guests expect a pre-dinner drink with appetizers. This consistently tasty Spanish Rosado (Rosé) is always a good value at $6.99 at Trader Joe’s.
