Wine Review: This opaque and very dark purple colored wine opens with a plum bouquet with hints of new leather and some barnyard scents. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, juicy and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a ripe plum with notes of old oak and hints of black raspberry and black pepper. The finish is rather dry and its big and dusty tannins build up quite a bit and linger. This Mencia is a very good mid-week wine. I would pair it with brick oven Italian sausage pizza. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Old Mencía vines from Bierzo's clay soils. An ample wine, finely textured with notes of blue flowers and red fruits.
