I am Heather and I am the winery representative. Sorry it took me a bit to get on the boards! I am available to answer any questions.
Thanks for joining us today Heather! Always good to see Bodegas here on Woot!
Can you tell us a little about the fruit source for the Grenache? Also, any comment on the mixture of stainless and neutral oak? Lastly, I know Dorothy has made Rosado with Tempranillo in the past- does she still? and/or why the switch to Garnacha?

Hey, I've got notes on this.
To start out with, this is a dry wine.
It's a pale colored Rose. Somewhere between an orange clementine color and pinkish salmon color.
I drank it chilled initially, and I'd tend to agree with Trifecta that it showed a little bit better after it warmed up, but given that it's hot in Texas, I still preferred to drink it chilled.
Based on the color, I expected this to be a bit lighter feel than the actual wine turned out to be. It had flavors of strawberry and watermelon candy.
It didn't have quite the acidity hit that I like from my Roses, and there was a carmel note on the finish that was a little different for me and took me a minute to adjust to.
My girlfriend enjoyed it. I thought it was decent: 87.
I'll admit to being a sucker for the Bodegas bottle labels though.
