Currant, black cherry. Maybe some pepper and chocolate. Pretty dense and concentrated on the palate. Lots of currant, plum, and black cherry. Med- acidity and med+ smooth tannins. Good fruit without being over oaked. — 16 days ago
Peach candy, butterscotch, honeycomb, vanilla, lemon cream. Similar notes on palate with med- acidity. Oak is there but not too overbearing. A bit more ripe than I like in this style. It's okay. — a month ago
Nose of dried roses, cherries, wet earth, dried oregano, some bretty barnyard funk, and a hint of volatile acidity.
Pretty good ripe red fruit with med+ acidity and med+ dusty tannin. Medium body. A bit of that mushroomy, barnyardy funk shows on the finish.
Quite rustic, but quite good for my taste. Old skool Italiana but with a kiss of sunshine. — 2 months ago
Strawberry, cherry, a creamy lactic yogurt quality, and a touch of garrigue or fennel.
Nearly full body on the palate with red fruit and flowers, blood orange, with a bit of that fennel/licorice. Medium acidity and a touch of phenolic bitterness.
Delicious rosé with a lot of food pairing potential given its structure. I will be seeking out more rosés from here. — 2 days ago
Aromas of spiced plum, dark bramble berries, chocolate, grilled meat, and a vaguely herbal note reminiscent of dill.
Plum, blackberry, black pepper, toasty oak, and some floral notes. Medium acidity and med+ tannins that leave some astringency.
Lovely stuff. A benchmark Mencía and deservedly so. — a month ago
Beautiful aromas of ripe cherry, raspberry, tobacco, dill, rosemary, and some creamy oak.
Huge, ripe cherry notes with med+ sour cherry acidity. Tannins are soft and silky with notes of toasty, creamy oak, herbs, and black pepper in the finish.
Very delicious and drinkable. Really enjoy the punch of red fruit acidity mid way as well as the very well integrated oak. — 2 months ago
On the nose: spiced plum, blackberry, black cherry, chocolate, toasty oak, and something vaguely herbal...dill or rosemary perhaps.
Good concentrated dark fruit that's slightly confected... reminiscent of grape bubble gum even. Blackberries, plums, with grippy tannins and some sweet oak in the finish.
Nice dark fruit, good integration of oak, and good structure. A steak wine for sure. I wish I would have waited a few years for the tannins to soften a bit. — 11 days ago
Stewed strawberry, licorice, earth, black pepper, grilled meat. Good fruit, medium acidity, soft but supporting tannins. Touch of alcohol heat. Good ripeness without being flabby and just darned tasty. — a month ago
Nose of dill, créme, strawberry, black pepper, and a touch of smokey, beef jerky.
Nice ripe red fruit: cherries and strawberries with med+ acidity and silky tannins. A touch of that cream and spice that was on the nose shows on the finish.
Really good stuff. Well balanced and nice integration of oak. I'm glad that there are new world producers out there who are not afraid to make a 12.1% ABV wine these days. — 2 months ago
