84pointsR. Lopez de Heredia 1995 Viña Tondonia Rosé (Rioja)

Part of you will be complexed by this unique-for-the-sake-of-unique oak-aged "rosé" while the rest of you, the less generous part, will want to pour it down the drain. It's oxidized, loaded with resiny wood, and tastes as much like sherried orange juice as fine wine. Yet on the other hand, it has apricot and almondy flavors and pulsing acidity that make you give it some thought. Definitely not for everyone but someone out there probably loves it.
