2013 Rubus Prieto Picudo Rose

1311Rubus is the private label of importer Fran Kysela, who brings in some ridiculous value wines when he’s importing other people’s stuff. Without a middle man, some of these Rubus wines are high value indeed.

This is the best value I’ve had, though.

This is simply excellent rose. A dark red color like many Spanish rosados, this is a deep, rich wine that tastes like fresh strawberries and a bit of citrus and would complement just about any food in the world, from steak to fruit. I would almost call it hearty.

Find someone who doesn’t like this wine. It’s impossible. And it’s $11.

92 points.

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
