    "The elegant pale Rosé 2018 Rosado is perfumed, clean and harmonious, with nothing to envy similar wines from Provence. The palate is dry and serious, with good balance and focused flavors. Very good value." ~ Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

    As Mr. Parker's Wine Advocate says, this Olivares Rosado has everything its Provencal Rose cousins do, but at a lower price... Pour your first deliciously fresh glasses to go with a heaping platter of assorted vegetable tempura - the combination is perfect. Follow that with a summer lobster salad if you're in the mood. Mile high chicken club sandwiches are another great pairing for this Rosado, as is an asparagus, shrimp and garlic scape pasta dish. As the old adage goes, though, you don't really even need food, just Rose all day!

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The elegant pale rosé 2018 Rosado is now 100% Garnacha, a grape that had a higher percentage in the blends of the last few years until it turned into a varietal wine in 2018. It's perfumed, clean and harmonious, with nothing to envy similar wines from Provence. The palate is dry and serious, with good balance and focused flavors. Very good value." Apr 2019

    Winery:  "We find floral a red fruits on the nose and, in the mouth. it is fruity, fresh and balanced. Food pairing: appetizers, grilled vegetables, fish, soups, pasta and salads."
