    The 2016 Rosé Vulcânico is an odd blend, with 25% each of Saborinho, Agronómica, Touriga Nacional and Aragonez. That blend gives it a distinctive flavor. Elegant, but showing good depth for a pink, it has freshness, too, but it is that flavor medley that is really interesting. This has, perhaps, a hint of baked strawberry mingled with a touch of salt. It's definitely a little different, but in a good way. Nicely put together, it should make a nice, dry (if somewhat unusual) pink this summer.
