Cristalino Rosé Brut NV
60% Pinot Nior, 40% Trepat Beautiful scents of raspberry and cherry on the nose with fresh, clean strawberry and cherry flavors in the mouth and a consistent bead. The finish is clean and crisp and invites another sip. Cristalino Brut Rose Cava is an excellent match for fried appetizers such as calamari or light desserts such as creme brulee.
Other Cava values under $25. Recommended and tasted, but no tasting note given.

The dark and rusty color is almost red. Aromas of roasted red fruits, tire rubber and baked beans precede a foamy palate with no smoothness. Cherry-skin flavors finish rough then hollow.
