Great wine, great label, great sense of place. And oops! Now I'm all out of Spanish wine.

Lots of raw edge in both the nose and mouth typical of low/no sulphur wines. Nice exuberant fruit though. Nice wine

v2012. Black olive and anise notes, and a touch of mushroom. Black fruit flavors, with great balance and length. Paired well with Spaghetti and Marinara.

Very Bretty berry fruit cherry nose. Thin in mouth but pleasant tannic bite.

A very tart and earthy rendition of Mencia. A fun bbq pork and country pate pairing.
