Wine Review: This medium purple colored Mencia opens with a pomegranate and red currant bouquet with hints of black licorice and cranberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, round, and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a red licorice and cranberry blend with notes of mushroom, loam and minerality. We also detected hints of red currant and spiced red plum. The finish is dry, and its moderate dusty tannins linger and last for a very long time. I would pair this Mencia with a Brazilian skirt steak with golden garlic butter. 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.
