Armas De Guerra - Tinto 2021
100% Mencia from 50-60 year old vines! Completely unoaked. While I often think of Mencia as an alternative to Pinot Noir, this wine shows a different side. Perhaps it is the age of the vines? Do you even care? It's the weekend... it's 94 pts for less than $15! If you want a full explanatiopn of the grape, region, etc. I am happy to do so... but I figure most of you just want me to get on with it and stop being so darn verbose! At any rate, this delicious little number offers dark blueberry and black cherry flavors along with hints of melted chocolate and spice. Sexy, seductive aromas of black raspberry, Asian spices and earth (think walking through the woods in the Fall) give way to a medium-bodied gem loaded with lush, ripe fruit, yet balanced by a savory spiciness. Oh my... with ribs? Are you kidding me? This would be soooo good!
