Cesar Marques Parajes Mencia Bierzo 2018
César Marquez Perez has deep roots in Bierzo: His family founded the Castro Ventosa winery in 1752 and they still own it today. Thanks to that long history, he has access to many of the top sites in the region. 80% Mencia from 80-120 year old vines with a large dose of Alicante Bouschet and some white grapes. Dark and crunchy, with violets, plums, mountain herbs, and black cherry. There is so much going on here for so little money.
