Cool aromas of cola, roasted berry and leather are also lightly floral, with violet hints. The palate on this single-vineyard Mencía is vital but meaty, with dark, earthy, toasty black-fruit flavors. A chewy finish offers up robust pepper and chocolate notes to accent leftover berry flavors. Drink through 2019.
