I love wine from the Canary Islands, and I've had some beautiful rosados made from Listan Negro. This is definitely my favorite, and the fullest and clearest expression that "I've encountered of what a rosé made from that grape in volcanic soils can be. Totally alive and completely refreshing from the moment it leaves the bottle, this pours a translucent ruby that is simultaneously bright and fully of depth. The nose is macerated raspberries, a hint of violet, smoke and the faintest hint of sea salt, while the medium-bodied palate offers ripe raspberry, smoke, toasted black pepper and hints of  black cardamom that lead towards a exceptionally long finish characterized by raspberry liqeuer, clay-y minerality, and delicate black pepper notes.  Thank you, Dolores Cabrera, for this transportive rosado of terroir that sings of sun, sea, and volcanic soil!
