Wine Review: This opaque light ruby colored wine opens with a pleasant mild black raspberry bouquet with a hint of must. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. Its flavors consist of mild plum with notes of dark chocolate and black currant. The finish is rather dry and its finish lingers nicely. If you have never tried Mencia before, this would be a Very Good starting point and introduction. It would also be a perfect pairing with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 100% Mencía in a ripe and juicy style, aged three months in a mixture of used French and American oak. Minerality remains as an undertone to the silky, chocolatey fruit. Intended to appeal, from a grape designed by nature for today’s wine consumer.
