Armas de Guerra is a historic winery founded in 1879, in addition, Guerra controls 1/3 of all the vineyard land in Bierzo (1,000ha - 2,471 acres) and only makes wine with the best 10% of the grapes harvested. This allows them to make such amazing wines that sell for a song! 100% Mencia from vines over 50 years old! Dry farmed, organically managed vines producing just terrific fruit...This is a crazy steal! The most delicate of the bunch, this is fresh and lifted, with delicate wild strawberry notes playing beautifully alongside hints of minerality and rose petals. Almost Provencal in style, with white pepper notes adding complexity, did I mention this is a crazy steal? This would be awesome paired with bouillabaisse and spicy foods, especially Cajun and creole food...crawfish boil, anyone?
Sexy, stylish and complex Bierzo with a wealth of dark graphite and stony aromas, pepper, baking spices and dark berries. Succulent palate with a deep and juicy core of pitch-perfect, ripe and spicy black cherries and blackberries. The tannins are immaculate. Long and regal.
