Name: 2009 Mencia Roble
Producer: Alvarez de Toledo
Variety: Mencia Roble
Wine Review: “The 2009 Alvarez de Toledo was bottled just a week before the wine was presented but seems to be showing no symptoms of distress. Balsamic, leather, and black fruits are the principal notes struck by this suave effort that over-delivers in a big way. Like its older sibling, it can be enjoyed now but will have more to say in 2-3 years.”
My Review: Garnet in color. Aromas of earth, dirt, and smoked wood. Tastes of under ripened red fruit.
