Donrsquo;t confuse Mencia with Cabernet Franc mdash; the aromas are similar but it is not related, though some people have said that it is. The vineyard was planted in the amazing year of 1976 and the wine sees no oak, so the pure flavor of the varietal comes through. On the nose, there is lots of white pepper with Asian spices, which evolve into savory flavors of champagne, raspberries and strawberries. Pair it with roasted chicken with herbs; it would even go well with grilled salmon.

The unoaked 2010 A Portela is made from 100% Mencia grown on granite and slate soil. Fragrant aromas of graphite, damp earth, Asian spices, and black raspberry lead to a surprisingly complex, sweetly-fruited, savory offering that is an outstanding value meant for drinking over the next 4ndash;5 years.
