Crafted from a select plot of Old Vine grapes in one of the highest quality areas in Valtuille, the Vinos Valtuille 2017 ‘Cabanelas’ Mencía is one of the García family’s most prized bottlings. The fruit for this wine comes from one of the family’s oldest vineyards that was planted in 1925, which provides layers of rich complexity in the finished wine. Deep red in color, this wine offers powerful aromas with notes of blackberries, raspberries, plumb, incense, black pepper, forest
floor and hints of minerality. The palate is full-bodied with a big mouthfeel and flavors of black fruits and spice. Nicely balanced with fine tannins, this wine is a fine addition to any cellar. Enjoy!
