Albero Organic Bobal Rose `08 DO $5.99 ***

Organic, vegan.  (umm yeah, I am neither of those, but it is good to know...)

Tonight tapas.

Alone, this rose is kind of astringent - better word, dry. Clean, fruity. Not my favorite Albero, I was expecting it to be sweeter.


Since I had it with shrimp & Chorizo sauteed with garlic and cherry tomatoes in olive oil, I have to say that is is a nice wine.  I wouldn't have it alone to drink, but it is like a nice light red wine.  Slightly chilled on a summer's day - I could easily see this wine working. With food.  Because it worked so well with the Chorizo and Shrimp, and it is only $5.99, I'll give it 3 stars.
