2004 Cuatro Pasos Mencia, Bierzo

SKU #1028333

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Austere and tight, this red has a deep mineral character that recalls schist and coal. Gripped by firm tannins, it slowly reveals its delicious dark cherry flavors. Decant and serve with blood sausages or other meaty dishes." (09/06) A Best Buy designation from the Wine Enthusiast: "Bierzo is being called the new frontier for stimulating Spanish red wines, but many are expensive. Cuatro Pasos, a new wine sourced from old hillside vineyards, is not. Still, it delivers power, freshness and flavor, all of which are attributes of the indigenous Mencía grape. With no overt oak character, good acidity and mild tannins, it’s perfect for drinking now." (November 15th, 2006) 88points the Wine Advocate! They say, "The 2005 Cuatro Pasos is 100% Mencia from the increasingly fashionable Bierzo region. A custom cuvee selected by importer Eric Solomon, this is the first vintage of this wine made from 80-year-old vines and aged for 3 months in French and American oak. Purple-colored with fragrant plum and black cherry aromas, this supple, ripe wine has excellent depth and medium length. It is a superb value for a wine from Bierzo. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. 2/28/2007"
