2012 Descendientes de Jose Palacios "Petalos" Bierzo

SKU #1181847

Produced from primarily Mencía, with a smattering of other local varieties thrown in, this is typically a very nicely made bottle of wine, produced from slate and clay vineyards at different elevations and orientations, in the Bierzo D.O. just west of León. Just as the change in scenery and topography indicates that one is at the border of the central meseta and the cooler northwestern portion of the country, Petalos typically reflects this as well, striking a fine balance between sturdy, medium weight fruit and more mineral, floral components. Enjoy with anything from a hearty lentil stew, to roasted chicken and potatoes or even a grilled steak served over peppery greens. This is delicious and quite food friendly. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish & Portuguese wine buyer)

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant.

The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
