JUST $12.95 A BOTTLE — OR $10 A BOTTLE FOR 12+ BOTTLES! Even comes in a wooden box!
We dabbled with this wine in our racks last Fall, but never did a promotion even though at that time we had the wine discounted to $15.95 a bottle. When we first sampled, we did a “triple-take” when we learned the price. Everyone who tried the Seculo was impressed at the price quality ratio, and we never had a complaint. NOW the importer has extended us a SPECIAL DISCOUNT which we offered last week in a promotion that resulted in selling 27 cases within a 24 hour period. The majority of those ordering had purchased previously and know a deal when they see one!
Vinos de Arganza became a family business when it was purchased by long-time wine industry professional, Víctor Robla and his wife Ángeles Varela. Varela’s roots can be traced back to her own family’s wine growing history in Bierzo (Galicia in northwestern Spain) over 500 years ago. Today, Vinos de Arganza relies on their terroir, traditional know-how; and when combined with current technological wine making are committed to quality and value. VALUE for sure!!
Trust me when I say, there is a lot of miserable Mencia from this region plaguing the American market and giving the variety and place a bad name. The Seculo is the perfect introductory wine if you have had a poor experience or wish to explore this wonderful grape’s potential. It’s aromas, flavors and structure can easily be mistaken for Cabernet Franc.
Perfectly aged and ready to drink this 100% Mencia received 91 points from the Wine Enthusiast.
The estate grown fruit is manually harvested. Fermentation occurs in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine ages for 3 months in French and American oak barrels before bottling.
Intense ruby color, with redolent, ripe blackberry and blueberry aromas. Beautifully balanced with smoky cedar and spice notes. Full, dark red ripe fruit notes, with just a hint of juniper, are mouth filling, juicy, and surprisingly smooth and round on the palate. Really a joy to drink with everything from grilled burgers and steaks to Merguez lamb sausage. BBQ Season!
