Wine Review: This dark red colored Mencia from Losada opens with a black forest chocolate cake bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused plum with hints of gentle black tea, espresso and a touch of pomegranate. The finish is dry and its refined moderate tannins stick around for a little bit. This Mencia would be perfect with slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The flagship wine produced from 21 small estate parcels on steep hillsides, is aged 15 months in new French oak and achieves the estate’s highest levels of concentration and minerality.
