2006 La Mano Mencia Roble: Good table wine, went well with dinner.


oct. 17, 2009: we had this spaniard with leftover chicken skewers and spinach mashed potatoes (see earlier posts), homemade beef stroganoff and steamed broccoli. it went well with all of it. greg said he thought the wine was smooth, with slight tannins (he said it's a 2 on the 1-5 tannin scale, with 5 being so tannic it's undrinkable). overall, for the price, he said, it was good. victoria liked it, too, though as with the Dogajolo the night before, it left a slightly sour taste in her mouth the farther it got from the meal. but it was still a decent wine for a decent price. 12 percent alcohol. $9.99 with 10-percent case discount at big red liquors.
