    Winemaker's Notes:

    The red is 80% Mencía, 10% Bastardo, and 10% Arauxa (Tempranillo). The wine is fermented and raised in tank, aging for 4 months before bottling. Only 500 cases are produced annually. This is an unoaked version of Mencia and is very elegant and fresh. Drink within the next 3-5 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Vivid ruby. Intense strawberry and redcurrant aromas complicated by suggestions of rose, anise and cracked pepper. Spicy and precise, with bright red fruit flavors perked up by a hint of allspice. The tangy finish features very good clarity and length.

    Excellent for the money (at twice the price). A real triumph of modern winemaking
