Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: morello cherry red with violet reflections.

Nose: medium-high intensity. The varietal aromas of red fruits predominate with a subtle hint of toasting of wood.

Palate: elegant and balanced in the mouth. Aftertaste: very fruity varietal.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: roast or stewed meat, small game, carpaccio, cured meat, pastas, pâtés and goat cheese.

100% Mencía from 80 year old vines.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Cuatro Pasos is 100% Mencia sourced from 70- to 80-year-old vines in pure slate at the highest elevation of the DO. It was aged for 2 months in French and American oak. Deep crimson-colored, it displays an enticing nose of lightly roasted red fruits, graphite, creme de cassis, and red licorice. Dense, super-ripe, and exceptionally concentrated, this mouth-filling effort is a remarkable bargain in savory red wine. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. "
