Raul Perez "Vico" Bierzo 2008


Vinturi - earth/pepper/truffle/sexy oak spice/grilled meat. This does, in fact, show a light citrus note as well... More bass than the El Brozal though. Also extremely attractive..

Round and densely packed, with some textural sweetness. A bit simpler than El Brozal in the mouth, showing potato/earth/spice flavors and significant acid-driven structure. Interestingly, this too finishes with citric chew on the front teeth. Huge bang for the buck with both of these Spanish wines.

$30. 100% Mencia
