Guimaro Ribeira Sacra Tinto Mencia 2017

Meaning ‘rebel’ in local Gallego dialect, Guimaro was founded in 1991 by Pedro Rodriguez, a practicing organic farmer in Galicia. The winery’s Mencia grows on old vines, keeping yields naturally low, giving way to concentrated, juicy fruit. The 2017 Ribeira Sacra Tinto is savory and silky, oozing with luscious red fruit flavors noted with spice. Great with tacos or roast pork!

Mencia

Gripping herbal red specialty of Galicia traditionally compared to – but not related to – Cabernet Franc. Its lively acidity and tangy pepper-tinged fruit give it great energy and a capacity to age.

Galicia, Spain

Cool, green,' northwest Spain, a rocky, undulating tangle of rivers running to the Atlantic and, lately, brimming with gutsy wine: Albariño in Rias Baixas; Mencía in Bierzo; and many quirky others.
