Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Covered ripe sweet-cherry color, with a purple, clean and shiny hue. A mixture of red and black fruit, spices (black pepper, cinnamon), chocolate, young toasty wood and a mineral balsamic background on the nose. Full, fleshy, velvety, very good structure without being astringent, sweet tannins, balanced glyceric fruit. Balsamic finish with licorice notes and a sweet bitterness in the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Ramon Valle is also Mencia but from 55-year-old vines on slate aged for 6 months in barrel. More deeply colored and revealing a perfume of brooding black fruits along with licorice and espresso, in the glass it is dense, balanced and structured enough to evolve for 1-2 years. This lengthy effort is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 4-5 years. "
90 Points

"Bright ruby. Aromas of crushed red berry skin, flowers and minerals, plus a hint of smoky herbs. Bright and focused, with intense cherry and raspberry flavors that gain sweetness with air. Shows a wild, vaguely medicinal amaro quality on the long, penetrating finish. I suspect that this could age well on its balance."

Terrific value! A smooth & supple red, with lots of chocolate and black cherry,, a touch of spice, and an all around plush mouthfeel. It's fruit-forward in a new world style, but with an old world kick. Balanced, easy drinking
