Vino Rosado enticing wine has a complex fruity, spicy and perfumy nose. Ripe aromas of cherry and plum are enhanced by notes of carnation, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Medium-bodied, the full-flavored wine is bone dry and crisply acidic. Syrah greets you with lush blackberries, molasses and a touch of honey from its considerable new oak ageing. The Grenache component adds a softer, more supple bright cherry flavor that is accentuated by a hint of vanilla. Syrah comes from four different vineyard lots of Syrah and one of Grenache. Barbera is the floral aromas of violet, ripe notes of cherry, sloe and deep plum, and spicy hints of nutmeg and white pepper combines for a seductive and complex nose. Medium-bodied, the berry and malt flavors are lifted by firm acidity and well-structured tannins. Finishing with a nutty texture, this lovely wine is ideal for lighter red meat entrees or spicy game fowl.
