2019 Castro Candaz Mencia Ribeira Sacra Spain
Deep garnet. Dried cherry, blackberry, licorice and pungent flowers on the smoke-accented nose. Gently chewy black and blue fruit flavors slowly unfold, taking on a spicy nuance. Lingers nicely on the youthfully tannic finish, which echoes the licorice and smoke notes.
