This Mencia was a medium magenta/ruby color in the glass. An earthy nose of crushed gravel and licorice with blackberry and lilac aromas. The palate had medium (+) acidity, medium (-) tannins and a hefty body. Blackberry, gravel, licorice all featured and the finish was medium in length. Pairings for this wine would include lamb chops, beef stew or even roast duck. Drink this 90 point wine till 2026. I paid $20 but it can found for a few bucks cheaper, not bad and worthy of 5 stars. Salut….
