Lousas Viñas de Aldea Mencía 2019

Wow. This was pretty different from the first bottle. Open from the get-go here, the glass was filled with floral, spicy, and red-fruited aromas. Lovely verticality and chock full of energy, with lip-smacking sweet red fruits, chalky tannins, and a bittersweet herbaceous finish. Delicious! — 3 days ago

No notes. Somehow stopped short of delicious, but admirably competent. — a month ago

Excellent, fresh and fragrant red fruits like cherry and raspberry, subtle and sweet baking and licorice spices, violets and lavender. Excellent density and flavor intensity but elegant and fresh mouthfeel. Just a pure joy and pleasure to sniff and sip! — 23 days ago

PV Pago de Valdoneje Bierzo Mencía 2015

Extremely earthy. Aromas and flavors of red and black fruits with hints of smoke, black licorice and roasted mint leaves. Just a touch of Brett. Really dense (including the color) and concentrated. Fine tannins. Rustic but elegant. Thanks a mark B. — 5 days ago

Versos de Valtuille Bierzo Mencía 2018

Refreshing change of pace. 100% Mencia. Shining acidity wrapped up by ripe red fruits. Barn yard animals on first pour, blows off after a min. No oak, light silky tannins, slight minerality. Effortless with a pizza but probably better with @Lars Fasel lamb shank. — 3 days ago

Pago de Valdoneje Roble Bierzo Mencía 2020

Wow! I find it mindblowing for the price. There must be some carbonic maceration involved. Flowers and cherries, and raspberries, a hint of wet leaves, foliage. Blood, or iron like note of Mencía. Pleasant medium body — 10 days ago

Light, chillable red. Drinks like tart, refreshing cranberries and rocks. Lovely. Paired really well with my spicy steak noodles.
