For The Love of Mencía

Just tasted the Cuatro Pasos 2007 Bierzo, Spain $16.99. If you haven't
had the mencía grape before, imagine the love child of pinot noir,
grenache & cabernet franc. This yummy little bottle has an earthy,
spicy, dark plum & brambly note on a moderately full body. The tannins
are dark & gripping. They grip softly but grip nonetheless. This is
something different & damn tasty!
