From the importer:
Pale pink. Lively red berry and orange zest scents are complemented by fresh floral and white pepper flourishes. Juicy and precise, offering bitter red currant and tangerine flavors that deepen and become sweeter on the back half. Taut and nervy on the finish, which hangs on with good spicy persistence .(Josh Raynolds).
Vinos Guerra, founded in 1879, is the oldest winery in the Bierzo region. The founder Don Antonio Guerra was a pioneer in many ways. Mr. Guerra was one of the first producers to bottle method champanois wines in Spain. In addition to wine, Don Antonio also produced a variety of spirits from Agua Ardiente, to Vermouth and Anisettes.
Today the Guerra winery farms 1/3 of all the vineyards of the Bierzo region. Out of the 3,000ha (7,413 acres) of vineyard land in Bierzo, Guerra takes care of 1,000ha (2,471 acres), however they only make wine with the best 10% of grapes. This rigorous selective process allows the Guerra wines to show, consistently, extraordinary quality.
In addition to been so selective, Guerra possesses among the oldest and most precious Mencia (Mehn-cee-ah) and Dona Blanca vines in the Bierzo region. The average age of these vines is 50 years making wines that are able to communicate an impressive sense of depth and flavor.
In summary Guerra is one of the most historic wineries in Spain focus in making wine with the best selection of grapes coming from old vines that are 50+ years old. All these vineyards are organic and dry farmed.
