Adega Algueira Mencia 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2013 regular bottling of Mencía from Adega Algueira is a superb example of the vintage, coming in at a touch lower octane than the 2012 and 2011 versions (12.5 versus 13 percent) and is raised entirely in stainless steel tanks. The vines used for this bottling average twenty to forty years of age. This is really a superb wine and one of the top values to be had from Ribeira Sacra, as the wine offers up a complex and vibrant nose of pomegranate, black cherries, slate, a touch of black pepper, tree bark and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is fullish, pure and nicely transparent, with lovely soil signature, fine focus and grip, moderate tannins and a long, very well-balanced and classy finish. Fine juice.
