Wine Sprits93 Patelin Rose

93 points: 2017 Patelin de Tablas Rosé (Wine&Spirits)

"This rosé is mostly grenache and mourvedre; it captures the cool side of Paso in its freshness, with bright flavors that could substitute for strawberries and cream at a Sunday morning tennis final. Fragrant, smooth, and gracious, it's a rosé that feels complete on its own, and completely integrated." (Joshua Greene, September 2018)
