A black, tarry red wine with pleasantly bitter baked black fruit and charred oak on the nose and palate. The wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation to make it smoother, then is aged 9 months in Allier and Never (French) oak barrels. Pair with grilled meats.

Food pairings: meat lovers pizza, gourmet hamburgers.

Reviews and Ratings

This robust Spanish red wine is made from 100% Mencia grapes that are grown on vines more than 60 years old, which concentrates their flavours. The extraordinary old-vine character of the wine is something you won't forget. Finished with dried herbs and tanned leather. - Community Wine Reviews
