Wine Critic Reviews:

The outstanding 2009 De Nit (rose) has an almost hypnotic, perfect pale hue that is worth the price alone! A blend of classic Cava varieties with 5% Monastrell, it is sourced from 30- to 40-year-old vines from the estate. The nose is very subtle and very pretty with traces of rosewater, fish scale and Morello cherries, all beautifully defined and drawing you in. The palate is crisp and tense on the entry: a minimalist rose cave that is based on freshness and poise rather than delivering fruit intensity. It is a delicate, very pretty, harmonious Cava rose that is sensual and alluring. Who needs Champagne when Cava can be as good as this? Drink now-2015+. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Region Penedes: When you think of Catalonia, you think of beautiful tropical scenery, bustling Barcelona, unbelievable local cuisine and stellar wines. Penedes is the heart of this region's viticulture, every bit as vibrant and rich as you would expect from such a magical place. Warm, heavenly summers, moderate rainfall and gentle winters make this region ideal for winemaking. The varied topography further allows Penedes to grow plenty of different types of grapes, resulting in a wide selection of top-notch wines. Native grapes like Tempranillo, Monastrell, Garnacha and Carineno have been the traditional base for reds produced here. On top of that, Penedes now houses plenty of adoptive Bordeaux grapes as well. White and rose wines can be found in different styles too as the region produces virtually all types of wine one could imagine. No wonder Penedes is such a beloved location among wine enthusiasts. Who wouldn't love to visit this paradise and sample its rich, fruity nectars? Luckily, even if you aren't able to travel to Catalonia any time soon, the terrific wines produced there are available to you. Secure one for yourself and let the magic of magnificent Penedes illuminate any occasion you deem worthy.
Type of Wine Rose: Rose wine is a versatile drink that involves letting the grape juice soak with the skins for several days, before being allowed to ferment properly. The resulting liquid achieves a beautiful color, ranging from a sweet honey orange to a playful purple hue, adding some color variety to your collection.
Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
