Atlantic wine by Luis Rodríguez. Fresh and aromatic blend of indigenous varieties Brancellao, Ferrol, Caiño Longo and Caiño from multiple terraced micro-vineyards on the steep, granitic hillsides of Arnoia, Ourense. Juicy red fruit. Some spicy, peppery notes. Chalk. Perfect pairing with octopus

Definite gaminess-- like medium-rare venison. Canned Thanksgiving cranberry jellly-- like the stuff that takes the shape of the can. Ripe strawberry. Wild herbs and field of grains. Rose petals. Beef jerky. Tomato leaf. Red licorice. Bit of sweet tobacco. No doubt this is a complex wine.
This is the type of wine that right when I open and taste I think, "this is going to be absolutely delicious and layered in like two days if I leave it". And it's even gorgeous after like 20min in the glass.
Med/med+ gritty tannin, medium acidity, medium + body. Very Ruby red with clear rim. Lot of staining. Has a big feel, but it's somehow still light and refreshing.
Honestly, it's a lot bigger than I thought it would be for a Rias Biaxas Tinto. Feels so Rhone Grenache to me. This nose is so beautiful though... 91.5 — 2 years ago
2016. Mencía, Brancellao, Mouratón y Sousón que, además, lleva un pequeño aporte de Garnacha tintorera. Atlántico, afrutado, mineral, herbáceo y con notas balsámicas. He copiado las notas de cata porque me ha parecido un vino muy complejo que merece la pena probar. 16€ aprox. Excelente caldo. — 2 months ago
