Wine Review: This very very dark ruby colored Mencia from Spain is a very good value. It opens with fragrant plum bouquet with hints of pipe tobacco and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, very approachable and friendly. The flavor profile is a mild red plum with notes of old oak and minerality, I also detected hints of gentle pomegranate, ginger and black olive in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins linger nicely. This wine would pair perfectly with a slow cooked Texas beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: One hundred percent Mencía, partially aged in new French oak. Bright red berry fruit and slate on the nose is followed by lingering fruit and minerality, the oak serving to provide structure while remaining well in the background.
