Dry rose' wine reduced from $9.99 to $8.99 at Harris-Teeter grocery store. 13.5% alcohol by volume. Screwcap. Label recommends pairing with hors d'oeuvres, paella, seafood or chicken.
Coral-pink color; some transparency. On the palate I find red berries and white peach flavors. Very pleasant. Enough acid to balance the fruit. Served blind, I doubt that I could distinguish it as from Rioja. In fact, most rose's would be hard for me to identify by region. This paired quite nicely with baked shrimp in an orange-ginger sauce and yellow rice. I went back to buy more for a church fundraiser since I wasn't able to get more of the Muga Rioja rose'.
I will try either the Tavel or the Reverdy Sancerre rose' next.

Suggest you also look for the Codorniu pink cava (made from Pinot Noir). At 12% acl/vol and $11.27 Sam's Club price, it's a winner. We've gone through a bunch of it since finding it in the early spring.
