Señorio de la Antigua Mencía 2012

Oh boy, we’ve got some cool stuff for you this week! Mencia is an ancient indigenous Spanish grape varietal that is often used in blended reds to add peppery spice and meatiness. But this week’s special, from Senorio de la Antigua, is a 100% Mencia that showcases the grape’s style and intensity. The 2012 vintage is slowly working its way towards maturity but it isn’t there yet and, as a result, this brash 90 Pointer has gobs of fruit and spice. The initial pop of crushed red currants, tart cherries, and raspberry preserves is augmented by layers of nutmeg, game, stewed prune, grilled herbs, and anise creating a wonderfully voluptuous effect that seems to quickly entrance you as soon as the first sip touches your lips. The sanguine finish is thoroughly complete with dusty tannins supporting notes of premium balsamic vinegar, tobacco leaf, and iron rich soil. Drink this beauty over the next 5ish years and serve it alongside hearty dishes like Morroccan chicken, carne adobada, or flank steak with chimichurri.
Food Pairing:
An exotic wine like the 2012 Senorio de la Antigua Mencia deserves to be paired with a similarly exotic meal. My cooking is probably a good bit less exotic than yours (since I have to accommodate picky kids) but I still like to mix it up a bit. One of my favorites is grilled rare lamb t-bones rubbed with yellow curry and served alongside chickpeas that were gently simmered in chicken stock and a really delicate curry blend from Savory Spice Shop called Marakesh Moroccan Spice which is so aromatic and fresh that using it immediately perfumes the entire kitchen. I like to drizzle the whole thing very lightly with my old standby sauce that contains equal parts of warm hoisin sauce and cherry preserves thinned at the last moment with the juices from resting the lamb after cooking.

Vina Zaco Rioja 2014

We love Rioja! Yes we do! And this week we have a Rioja that is so yummy and so darn cheap that you’d be crazy not to come in and buy some. You’re not crazy, are you? So come on over this evening and taste the 2014 Vina Zaco for free at our tasting bar. When you do, you’ll find a lovely medium bodied expression of the classic Spanish red varietal, Tempranillo. Fresh and perfumed on the nose, you’ll get hints of rose, crushed raspberries, cedar, and a touch of anise. The palate is so pleasant and appealing both in terms of the weight and the fruit profile. Flavors of freshly picked cherries and ripe plums dance with kirsch liqueur, dried orange zest, and just a bit of humble earth creating an engaging tapestry of aromas and flavors that you just don’t see in sub-eight dollar reds. Serve this beauty with lighter dishes like grilled bread topped with marinated roasted peppers and eggplant with shaved Iberico delicately placed on top like a high thread-count bed sheet on a warm summer evening. Heck, at this price you could use the Vina Zaco as the base for a seriously bad-a$$ red sangria by adding some fresh fruit, club soda, and a splash of good Spanish brandy. Either way, you need to get your butt down here this weekend and grab some of this killer Rioja before it’s gonzo.
Food Pairing:
The 2014 Vina Zaco would make a killer party wine. It’s ripe and juicy enough to be super easy to sip all by itself, but it would also stand up to a whole range of passed appetizers. I think it would be particularly at home alongside a plate of smoked salmon with capers, olives, crusty bread, and aged cheese. But if you want to do something more formal with it then I’d go for something like a whole roast chicken with finely minced olive tapenade rubbed under the skin before the bird goes in the oven. Either way, as soon as you taste this one you’re going to start thinking of ways to use it because it is seriously tasty!
