Chuggable lighter weight Mencia from terrific producers, one from the Rhone. High acid, almost effervescent mineral notes, with bright cherry, white pepper, herbs, and violets... fermented in cement, some whole cluster. Delicious!

Deliciously ripe and juicy mix of black/blue fruit, backed by spices, herbs, and notes of warm earth. Very sleek and shows a quite side at this point, this needs a little more time to meld and unwind.

Paella night! I know we’re supposed to do Rioja, but Bierzo is on the table tonight. Cracked pepper & blackberry nose. Full bodied, more dark berries and smoky notes cross the mid palate. Structured, but very approachable and enjoyable right now.
