5 Wines Worth Cellaring

Surprisingly affordable additions for your collection


« Prev Next » 5 of 6

Many people have compared Spain’s Mencia grape to Cabernet Franc, and for the purpose of this discussion that comparison is pretty fair. A lot of Mencia is made in a very approachable style, so when cellaring it I look to specific appellations where the wines tend to have a leaner, more focused nature that allows them to age well. These tend to be tense, nervous wines in their youth, but do become more expansive with time in the bottle. Try Ribera Sacra and Valdeorras.
