2007 Guímaro "B1P" Mencía Ribeira Sacra
Produced from the estate's oldest vines, on vineyards located high atop the precariously steep slopes of Ribera Sacra, this is very impressive wine indeed. Smoky, peppery, plum aromas lead to a slate mineral laden palate, with traces of savory herbs and smoke as well. Imagine a top-notch Crozes Hermitage, maybe even a Cornas, and you will get the idea here. Wow - this is serious wine, and likely to make a terrific cellar candidate.
