A little warm, sweet and baked, but that's Méntrida for you. Tres Patas is a blend with a full body and sweet flavors of plum, brandied cherry and chocolate. The feel is ribald but creamy, with thickness, bulky tannins and all the borderline syrupy aftertastes one can conjure. Needs another year or two, but then drink it up. 400 cases produced.
