BODEGAS PEIQUE MENCIA VINEDOS VIEJOS 2014, Spain
Availability: In stock
Comprised of 100% Mencia from old vines the process starts with fermention in stainless steel tanks then aged for 12 months in French, American, and Russian oak barrels. Deep black cherry hues with edges of purple are your first introduction to the depth of this Crizana which carries through to the well balanced palate. Deep spice, jammy dark fruits, and toasted earth are front and center on the nose. The silky mouthfeel starts off with hints of black pepper and balsamic leading into baked, dark fruits and nuances of minerality giving it successful acidity. The lingering finish is toasty, earthy, and creamy. Drink now or age up until 2023. You can drink this on its own or pair it with rich earthy dishes, smoked fare, and even heavy, sauced dishes (think Coq Au Vin or Chasseur).
