La Mano Mencia Roble Red Wine 2012

La Mano Mencia Roble 2012 is a red wine grown in Northwestern Spain. A smooth and wet wine with pepper and fruit tastes it maintains soft tannins. Aged in oak barrels for at least three months it provides quality for the price. The aroma is fruit and berry mixed. As a wine it has a wet and low level aftertaste which raises its appeal.  This wine was one of the specials you find in Trader Joes or other trendy stores and sold for $3.00 putting it in most people's price range. It normally retails for around $10. The special display that runs consistently offers an excellent opportunity to try trendy wines without breaking the bank.  Considering that it has won the  Los Angeles Wine & Spirits Competition awarded the 2011 vintage Gold Medal and the Mundus Vini awarded Gold you won't be disappointed.  I have a personal preference for wines that are easy on the palate and are either wet or slightly dry. I am not really into the heavier wines unless it is blended and cured ju
