Marques de Monistrol, Selección Especial Brut Rosé Cava, Catalonia, Spain
Tasting Note: A bright, easy-going, red-fruit forward, cava that’s enjoyable and checks the porch-worthy, rosé-bubbly box.
Deep-intensity pink in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of strawberry, red raspberry, caramel, red cherry and brioche.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied rosé cava delivers medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a red-cherry-infused, medium finish.
The wine is mostly straight-forward in flavor profile with strawberry-bubble-gum-like aura about it.
