The 2009 Verdes Castro Mencia is certainly not the type of wine you’d call “sweet”. Her spicy manner and no-nonsense ways have even occasionally earned her a reputation for being unapproachable. But if you’re the type who likes a challenge, she’s certainly well worth the chase. Give her a little time and you’ll see her soften into a wine of extraordinary warmth and complexity.
