My very best Ribeira Sacra! Lovely softness, balanced tanins and acidity, explosive fruits and mineral aromas... Wonderful!

Old vine Mencia, pretty and plush with a nice tug between the red fruit and herbs.

Merenzao from Ribeira Sacra (aka Trousseau and Bastardo). Very light color. Bright cherry flavor. Some strawberry on the nose.

Dry, cherries, wood, not a lot on the nose. Lighter, but still dry. Didn't go too well with porcinis, will try a better pairing. Maybe my palette's not ready for it! Decanted for 2+ hours.

Wow. Asked for a Spanish red from somewhere other than RbD, Rioja or Priorat with nice minerals and they offered me this. Elegant, light cherry Coke flavor (in a good way), satisfies the soul.
