88 2009 Pena das Donas Verdes Matas (Ribera Sacra) 4/12/13 ($17)
100% Mencia 12.5% alc
Overall: Deep black cherry garnet color. Subtle minerally earth and white chalk complement tart black cherry and raspberry fruit. A middleweight that's lively and tangy in the mouth. The fruit is a bit muted and could be more distinctive. A very good food wine, nonetheless. Drink now and in the next couple of years.
