2015 Armas de Guerra Mencía Bierzo

SKU #1290987

Produced from 60 year old mencía vines growing in Bierzo's famous slate vineyards, this fresh, tank aged wine shows original, bitter cherry, slightly medicinal aromas. Dark fruits on the palate pop with freshness, a lovely bitter snap and solid overall feel texturally. This is a great wine with plenty of surprising complexity for the price.

I was a big fan of the 2014 vintage of this wine, but the 2015 is perhaps even more powerful and well-crafted! Armas de Guerra does a great job exploiting the qualities of the Mencia grape. This varietal tends to display darker fruit, with meaty notes and an herbal, savory aspect. The magic that Armas de Guerra works is to present these qualities while maintaining a clean, bright fruit profile, unencumbered by sweet oak or funky notes. It is an easy wine to open and enjoy on its own or with food, and presents a much more complex palate than one would guess at this price point.

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
