Review El Precipicio Mencía Garnacha :
We are facing a Galician wine at least curious. It is a blend of grenache Mencia, very rare in these lands where Mencia is the queen and the less common Grenache.
The power of the Mencia grape strains of around 20 years is moderate with Grenache from old vines 80 years old.
The result is a powerful wine with lots of flavor to mencía but with aromas and balance provided by the Grenache.
A different wine that goes very well with cheese, grilled and even the great Galician stews.
The price is slightly high and that makes us your value for money is just right.

Yet it is a wine that is  advisable to try to look anything like the majority of local wines.
