|90||Vinous Media||Limpid orange. Pungent red berry and citrus fruit aromas are complemented by a white pepper nuance that adds spicy lift. A chewy, energetic midweight whose tightly focused bitter cherry and red currant flavors deepen and take a sweeter turn on the back half. Finishes firm and quite long, with repeating spiciness and a lingering cherry pit note.
2019 Rosé Roundup – August 15, 2019
|89||International Wine Review||Light pink blush. The Bovale offers a floral, spicy nose with notes of roses and a touch of cinnamon. It’s crisp and clean on the attack with original flavors of watermelon, pear, citrus, and poached pear, finishing with a lingering chalkiness.
"2018 Vintage Rosés from Spain and Portugal" - June 5, 2019
|88||View from the Cellar||The 2018 Bovale Rosado is composed entirely from the lovely grape of Bobal, with the wine fermented and aged in stainless steel and coming in at a cool twelve percent alcohol in this vintage. It is a pale salmon color and offers up a bright bouquet of watermelon, cherry skins, dried flowers, a nice base of gently chalky soil tones and a topnote of wild fennel. On the palate the wine is bright, bouncy and medium-full, with good focus and grip, zesty acids and fine length on the well-balanced finish. Very tasty and a good value. 2020-2025.
