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
