Bierzo is a delimited wine producing area in the northwest province of Castile y Leon, Spain. This relatively small region contains both slate by the hillside and clay type soil by the lowland plains. Though it was a very popular region for the Galician and Asturian markets, the the phylloxera epidemic destroyed the vineyards back in the mid 1800's and it was not until recently the advent of rootstock grafting that gave the rebirth for the region. Bierzo was granted the DO in 1989 and since then, continuous growth has brought this region back from extinction.

Created from 100% Mencia from 50-60 year old bush vines, Armas de Guerra Bierzo Mencia is a cherry red color wine with intense violet hues, offering notes of red, black and balsamic fruit notes on the nose. The fruit forward palate is fresh and harmonious with floral notes on the front and herbal undertones from mid palate leading to a long finish with fine mineral essence.

"A delicious, fresh, crisp, medium-bodied red, the 2013 Armas de Guerra Tinto offers up notes of forest floor, blueberries and raspberries. This completely naked, unoaked Bierzo, made from 100% Mencia from vines planted between 1955 and 1965, is a heck of a value. Pure, ripe and tasty, it is a delicious cool-climate red to drink over the next several years." - Wine Advocate
