With 90 + mph winds knocking trees into power lines, it looks like we will not have power through the night. Desperate times call for desperate measures: time for the emergency Cava rosado. Nothing will fool us into thinking we’re in sunny Barcelona better.
Vilarnau, Brut Reserva Rosé, Cava, Spain NV $15
It looks bright clear and cranberry pink. Smells of fresh, underripe strawberries, orange, and vanilla. Nears brut dryness with zipped acidity and a twangy fresh personality. Made from native Trepat and Pinot Noir. Very good stuff 4 of 5. $15 Thanks Vilarnau!
