Day 127 Penascal Tempranillo Rose 2007 for $6.99 at Vintages
This wine was the steal of the Spain and Portugal tasting at Vintages 2 wks ago. This wine looks like a White Zinfandel, tastes very similar to a White Zinfandel and is in the price range of a White Zinfandel. This wine is slightly sweet, crisp with lots of fruit flavors. This is a great summer wine that could be taken to barbeques, parties, a very versatile wine. This wine is from Spain made with the tempranillo grape which I tend to not like because it is too dry. However, this wine has a very balanced acidity which does not cause the heartburn of some other rose' wines or have the especially dry finish. I will continue to buy this wine for the price and the taste it is a great alternative to White Zinfandel at a similar price.
