James Suckling
Aromas of ripe berries such as blueberry and raspberry with slate and stone undertones. Full body plus silky and refined tannins that deliver a savory and delicious finish. Some pie crust and ripe fruit undertones too. Made from a selection of different vineyards of pure mencía. Superb value.

Expressive black cherry, currant, licorice, mineral and smoke flavors mingle in this focused red. The texture is gentle but firm, with well-integrated tannins and racy acidity providing structure. A compact wine that shows good intensity. Drink now through 2023.
 

Additional Information

Region :
Spain
Sherry and Rioja have long been the best-known Spanish wines outside Spain, but Cava, Rivera del Duero and other wine regions are gaining notoriety. Tempranillo and Grenache (Garnacha) are the primary red grapes used, while Albariño and Chardonnay lead white wine production. Spanish wines are aged at the winery and, contrary to most winemaking philosophies, are released only when they are ready to drink. Spanish wines are usually aged in Spanish, French or American oak, and tend to be big and ripe thanks to the warm dry climate. View all our items from Spain
