Taste/Description: Carlos Serres is a pioneer from Rioja and created one of the first wineries in Haro. Garnacha grapes are known as “grenache” in France and brings juiciness and body to a wine. Temparanillo contributes aroma, flavor and aging potential. Used in vast majority of red Riojas.

This Rioja Rose is made of 80% Temperanillo and 20% Garnacha grapes. On the nose you get red fruits and candy. On the palate you get crisp tangy flavors of raspberries and cherries. I enjoyed this wine. 91/100
