Preto 2009 Tierra de Leon Prieto Picudo Tinto

Prieto Picudo is a rustic and characterful native grape that grows around the town of Leon.  Gregory Perez uses a fresh and elegant approach in his elaboration - with minimal extraction, natural yeast vinification and reductive wine-making in tank. The 2009 Preto shows lovely dark bramble fruits, great freshness, savory black pepper and cumin notes, with a supple well fruited palate of tart black raspberry and concord grape.   Also, I think there's a mineral dimension that makes this wine really interesting and lovely.  A great introduction to the new Spain.  Pair with roasted birds and grilled meats. - cb/AR
