Borja of Valdesil claims this is an autochthonous grape separate from Merenzao. Structurally, the two are very different-this is a dark, muscular wine with an abundance of tannin, and darker, raspberry and black cherry flavors. — 4 years ago

2015. Wow! What a great, classic and rustic wine. This is made with a blend of 60% red grapes including some of my favorites from Galicia - Granacha Tintorera (aka Alicante Bouchet), Mencia and Trousseau (they call it Portuguesa, but also known as Merenzao and Bastardo) - plus 40% white grapes including Palomino, Godello, and others. Made in stone lagares and amphora (Roman empire style clay pots). No note of wood, although some of their wines are later aged in large old oak bote. Great minerality, freshness of fruit, and both floral notes on the nose from the white varietals and tannins on the palate from the red varietals. Served lightly chilled but could benefit from a little more. — 4 years ago
My first Raul Perez wine- def won't be the last. Just explodes right out of the gate- crazy nose of pomegranate, black raspberry, black pepper, some damp soil and just delicious. Buoyant and energetic with soft tannins and truly mouthwatering acid- not just pucker but actually make you want another sip. Really good stuff. Also, mencia with some souson, not what delectable says — 4 years ago
