2013 Guimaro - Finca Meixeman Mencia (93 pts) #winereview - Medium ruby core with a noticeable paler rim. Medium+ intensity on the nose. There is a ton of minerality on this wine a lot wet stone and freshly poured concrete. Also a lot Kirsch, cherry tomatoes, and ripe raspberries. Mild oak notes and a slight herbal note of sage. Medium acidity, medium- soft tannins, medium alcohol, and medium body. Palate is still very mineral from start to finish. This is very concentrated in its flavor profile. Sour cherry, sweet ripe tomatoes, and freshly picked raspberries on the palate. No noticeable oak on the palate. Great texture in the wine like freshly squeezed juice it's a strong potent flavor but not cloyingly thick. The finish is medium+ length. I love Mencia and it's such a great value for the crazy age of the vines and sheer difficulty to harvest these steep vineyards in Ribeira Sacra. This is a similar to great Cru Beaujolais, but less high toned berry fruit and floral notes, but more sweet and sour fruit with tons of rock. #wineterroir #winegeek #winelover #spain #ribierasacra #mencia #guimaro
