Vinos del Paseante La Escucha Mencía Bierzo, Spain 2018 (750ml)
La Escucha is a cherry-coloured wine with amethyst highlights. Intense primary aromas of blackberry, plum compote, a delicate touch of mineral and black liquorice against perfectly integrated notes of toasted wood. In the mouth it reveals excellent balance, pleasing freshness, with lively, silky tannins giving way to a pleasing aromatic fruity, spicy aftertaste. The wine is aged for some months in French and American oak barrels.
A versatile wine, it pairs perfectly with many dishes: barbecued meats, stews, game, mushrooms, smoked or dried meat, sheep’s cheese, sauteed vegetables, etc.
