Bierzo Mencía 2008

Andrew Holod

Birthday bottle with Balkan take away from Ambar DC.
Shows why this is still an underrated variety. Both dense, dark and plummy on one hand and a bit leafy/herbal and mineral on the other. It seems to meet somewhere in the Eastern Atlantic between Castilla y Leon and Bordeaux.

Mencia is so good. Producers can make it super light or heavy and tannic. Either way, I enjoy drinking it.

In a pretty perfect drinking window. I had this with a homemade paella and shared it with a new work friend. Polished, seamless, balanced, elegant. What a wine and vintage combo this was. Wish I had more bottles. — a month ago

Bodegas y Viñedos Vega Sicilia

Ribera del Duero Valbuena 3° Tempranillo Blend

Tasted blind. Ruby reddish color, young-looking compared to other reds so far. Opaque. Notes of black fruit, mocha, some earth and a little bit of wood. Rich in the mouth. Given our earlier Rioja bottle, we go back to Spain with guesses. I guessed 90 Unico. This is the Valbueno blend, with grapes from 85/91/96. 94+ — a month ago

Valserrano Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2016

Enough tannins to cleanse the palate and mature enough for a smooth finish. The nose is pleasant and the mouthfeel velvety. — a month ago
