  • What we love

    Virtually unknown outside of Spain, this New World expression of Mencía from Analemma is a mid-weight red with intriguing aromas. Produced from biodynamically-farmed grapes, this wine oozes with flavors of blackberries, plums, cracked pepper, and dried herbs. Think of it like Northern Rhône Syrah meets New World Pinot. We seriously love this wine.
