Marqués de Cáceres 2015 Rioja Rosé (Spain), $8.99-$10.99, 88 points, was a dark peach color graying at the glass edge.
Aromas of strawberry and red raspberry were quite nice.
Light, crisp, appropriately acidic, and straight forward flavors reflective of the aromas with a hint of watermelon rind and hibiscus were good.
Finished well on the trailing palate, a touch of cayenne pepper, and a balanced 13.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my nacho supreme on chipotle chips.
Varietals were 80% Tempranillo and 20% Grenache.
