Bodegas Peique Mencía Bierzo Tinto 2009

Member Review by jtryka:

The color on this wine is a deep ruby, somewhat darker than I expected. At first blush, the wine had a distinct nose of "Frankenberry" but as I let it open up a bit, the fruit subsided and a lovely combination of leather, spice, tobacco and espresso made themselves known. The taste was rather surprising, as I was expecting a rush of fruit at the outset that never really appeared. There were some hints of berries with a good bit of spice at the outset, black pepper and anise that quickly transitioned to some lovely mineral notes midpalate. The finish was quite striking, with some balsamic over the stark minerality of dusted limestone and granite that made for a long, dry finish.
