Algueira, Ribeira Sacra 2006

Very deep red.

Vinturi - black cherry, earth/nut, savory meat sauce nose.

Intense entry - strawberry and earth flavors have good depth/plushness. Strong acidity really forces the salivary glands into action. Lean from the mid-palate on. Herbs on the finish. Worth cellaring for a few more years. Good winery - I think this is the third vintage I've tasted and all have been very good or better.

$25. 100% Mencia.
