    "Harmonious and graceful" ~ Wine Spectator

    The medium body of this magnificent Mencia won't need food to satisfy; the delectable array of flavors and its fresh, balanced nature will do that all by itself. Did we mention it's a great price for this Parker rating??! If you felt like whipping something up, the beautiful balance and subtle wow of this Descendientes would go beautifully with mushroom toasts, or Italian-style chicken liver crostini with caramelized, thin-sliced shallots on top. And that could be all you need... Pan-roasted chicken with garlic, white wine and rosemary would be a terrific partner for this P̩etalos if you needed something more. Or grilled pork tenderloin with mustard and tarragon. Your choice. But as they say in Spain, no se lo pierda winelovers!! Pull on those shopping boots and go to town!

    :  "This savory red offers notes of espresso, black olive and graphite framing a core of black cherry and licorice. Fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity keep this balanced. Harmonious and graceful. Drink now through 2024." Oct 2018
