Details
Veronica Ortega grew up in southern Spain in the port city of Cadiz but after stints at wineries around the world she found herself working in Bierzo with famed vintner Raul Perez.  She fell in love with the area and stayed to make her own outstanding wines.  The 2015 Quite is her entry level red that offers a delicious rendition of Mencia.  It typically retails for $25 a bottle, but we have this wonderful wine for a steal.

"I've been unlucky with this wine before, but the 2015 Quite was finally hitting it on all cylinders, with an earthy nose intermixed with heady and perfumed notes of violets and decayed leaves with a spicy twist, quite attractive and changing quickly in the glass. There is very good complexity here and the palate is elegant, with refined tannins and surprisingly good freshness given the character of the year and the fact that Mencia is never very high in acidity. Tasty, approachable and full of character." 92 points Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate

"A linear and fine wine with blueberry, blackberry and granite aromas and flavors. Medium body, bright acidity and a firm finish. Delicious now." 92 points James Suckling
