While I am not a fan of extruded corks (hate the work involved in getting them off the worm) ZaZa from Spain exactly what one might expect in a festively named rose. Deep cranberry hue with loads of red flower, strawberry and juicy cherry aromas along with a hint of pepper spice. Dry with crisp acidity, the wine was quaffable and fun. The alcohol was a bit high (14%) but thankfully the wine has enough fruit to carry the extra weight and heat. A crowd pleaser wine and a great value at $10. Cheers.
