2011. A perfect example of why we should bring this grape to California. Algueira is one of the top Mencia producers in Spain.

This wine is impeccable. The best of Spanish acidity meets lovely tannins and tons of dirty, dark berries.

Gato for our anniversary - lighter but a little too dry. Dark fruits (cherry, plum) and a bit earthy.
