Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2005 Ambos is 100% Mencia sourced from 40-50 years old vines farmed biodynamically. It was aged in French oak for 8 months. Plum-colored, it delivers an alluring perfume of cedar, mineral, leather, black cherry and black raspberry which jumps from the glass. Smooth-textured, the wine has layers of silky black fruits, lively acidity, and good integration of the oak. This tasty, moderately lengthy, elegant wine can be enjoyed over the next 6 years... 91" WA 02/08
