Spanish Rose'

It is better to have bread left over than to run short of wine.....    Spanish Proverb
Salmon again - this  time a small piece with the added benefit of an even smaller piece of Walleye and both cooked over alder. Some angel hair pasta with fresh pesto completed the meal.

The wine was a 2014 Protocolo, Vino de la Tierra de Castilla in La Mancha.  It is a blend of 50% Tempranillo and 50% Bobal.    The color was a cross between orange and pink and it smelled of raspberries and citrus.  Light, refreshing, slightly tart, bold fruit flavors that managed to finish totally dry.   This was an incredibly easy wine to drink and at $8 a bottle it is an incredible bargain.  With its low alcohol it's also one that was gone before the bread.

2014 Protocolo, Vino de la Tierra de Castilla.  12.5% alcohol and $8.
