Earth & Spicy
I've never had the Mencia varietal before trying this wine. This wine is 100% Mencia, and I found it... different, and interesting. It's spicy, firm tannins, dark dry fruit, somewhat one-dimensional on the palate, but the finish is long and complex.
Excellent wine. ...bought a case
Before dinner and during. With pasta dishes and lamb.
Nothing glaringly wrong, I just think that the mencia grape isn't for me. Too much bitter bitter chocolate on the mid-palate.
