N/V Monasteriolo Cava Brut Rose

Another $7 bottle from Trader Joe's.


A bit of strawberry on the nose.


Tart strawberry and raspberry, a nice amount of acid, quite dry, and a touch of yeast.


More berry...straw/ras/blue....on the finish.


Another absurd value from Trader Joe's – Spain does a great job with low priced sparkling wines and this one is certainly one of them. No trace of any fake sugar, strange syrup, or metal – it's not complex by any means of course, but other than being somewhat simple, there are no flaws here.

I was hooked on this, here in San Francisco it was $3.99 at Trader Joe's. Of course, the day I went to buy a case it had all disappeared. It was a really nice aperitif, and a nice simple treat.
