For an "entry level village wine", this little Mencia is awesome! Because there is already some bottle age here, this Ribera Sacra has lost its super flashy, floral fruit that I usually associate with Mencia from this region. Instead, you get a beautifully ageing wine for a ridiculous price. Stewed red cherry, warm saddle leather, thyme, cranberry, and spice with medium plus acidity and fine, elegant tannin. I want to make a meaty meal, have some friends over, and toast Espana!
