"Tajinaste’s 2016 Rosado is composed entirely of Listán Negro and is made by the saignée method. This is an outstanding example of Rosado, offering up a pure and complex bouquet of dried red berries, a touch of pepper, really terrific soil signature, white cherries , violets and a touch of fruit-skin in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full bodied, vibrant and very elegant in profile, with impressive complexity, a good core and a long, poised and zesty finish. This is fermented with indigenous yeasts and as a result, it seems to be a cut above its compatriots in complexity. Fine Rosado! 2017-2023."
