2004 Viña Vilano Rosado

Last night with a dinner of roast chicken thighs in a savory sauce and some pine nut couscous, I served a bottle of the 2004 2004 Viña Vilano Rosado, a $9 Spanish rosé from the Ribera del Duero region in the north. It's 100% Tinto Fino and the flavor is all about the berries--strawberry and raspberry mostly. There's a crisp, almost effervescent feel on the tongue. It's a great bargain, but I was personally wanting a softer finish. Good entry-level rosé for picnics or casual occasions.
