Tasting Notes

Recaredo’s “Intens Rosat” has no pretenses of being an airy, innocuous quaffing rose. On the contrary, in its brilliant ruby color, in its volume and breadth in the mouth, and in its delicious succulence, it revels in its power and depth.

Staff Pick Notes

Recaredo produces magnificent aged cavas that showcase the calcareous soils of the Alt Penedes region in Catalunya. They are known for a unique, rich style and they harvest everything from their own biodynamic vineyards. The "Intens" is a special rose cava that is as bold as it sounds. It's hearty enough to serve with the main course.There are a multitude of pairings options for rose sparklers, and this is especially giving. I found it complemented equally a red bean soup as much as a paella of sausage and chicken. Made primarily of Monastrell (uncommon in cava) with Garnacha the color is a glowing red plum in the glass. Aromas are bready, with almost medicinal-like red fruits. On the palette fresh black cherries, raspberries, fennel, and a tingling acidity that acts as a palette cleanser. "Intens" in another word, electrifying.

Grenache is familiar to most wine drinkers as an ingredient in the blends of the Rhône and Languedoc-Roussillon, where it can add charm to varieties that are a little rougher around the edges. The distinguished Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas appellations are both...

Pinot Noir

The Burgundy region of northeastern France is the historic home of the Pinot Noir grape, and is the source of the world’s greatest examples. Here one finds renditions of Pinot Noir that deliver power with finesse and grace, wines that have unimaginable depth of flavor, yet are perfectly balanced and ephemeral in the mouth - in short, wines that deliver all that Pinot Noir has to offer. Terroir,...

Monastrell

Cava

Dry, delicious Cava is an excellent Champagne alternative. The best examples are aged on the lees (the spent yeast cells used in fermentation) and show complexity to rival that of the best Champagnes.
