Cuatro Pasos Mencía 2006, Bierzo, Spain - $13



From the Martin Codax Winery, this red wine is 100% Mencía from D.O. Bierzo, Spain. I purchased it for $13 at Whole Foods. It's rated 91 points by Wine & Spirits, a Best Buy by the Wine Enthusiast, 88 points by the Wine Advocate, and is imported by Eric Solomon.

Aroma - fruity, cassis, hot
Taste - fruit, DRY, strong tannins

I don't tend towards wines that exhibit aromas and tastes of overwhelming alcohol. We had this wine with the Coq au Vin tonight.
