Wine of the week: 2009 Muga Rioja Rosado
It's been either muggy and sticky hot, or now just plain hot, and a girl gets thirsty. Come early evening, I'm ready for an apéritif, and this Spanish rosé has become a favorite. Dry and crisp, the Muga rosado carries a scent of wild strawberries and tastes a bit like that too. Graceful and nuanced, this rosé is still gutsy enough to pair with bold flavors.
Even better? It's 12 bucks a bottle. Click here for details:
