2007 Adega Pena Das Donas "Verdes Matas" Ribeira Sacra (Previously $17)

SKU #1050204

Produced from 100% Mencía grapes, the '07 Pena Das Donas Verdes Martas should turn lots of people on to the amazing red wines of the steep, slate-filled Spanish D.O. known as Ribera Sacra. On the nose, a combination of blueberry and red raspberry fruits also shows some French oak, no surprise as this is a relatively youthful wine. These aromas carry over to the palate, which is where the real magic of this wine begins to reveal itself: The fruit shows amazingly fresh, intense and flavorful, all while retaining a degree of subtlety and grace not often seen in a red wine of this price. Very mineral and a touch floral as well, this beauty is what a Ribera Sacra wine is all about, and should serve a wonderful introduction to the fantastic wines of this quickly emerging D.O. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer).

Holy minerality! Almost prickles the tongue as if there were some carbonation in here. Could use a touch more fleshiness for my palate but nice. Reminds me of a simple light (clean) Bourgogne. 87
