Valtuille Cepas Centenarias Bierzo Mencia 2020

Austere yet so elegant. And still so very young. Needs time!
Enticing nose with violets, orange zest, dark cherry, wet slate, smoke, roast, raw beef, cloves & allspice. Evolves as it opens up.
Pure & vibrant on the palate. With fresh, juicy acidity, cool freshness & mineral depth. The tannins are amazing - so polished, finely grained, juicy. Poised, elegant, and yet uncompromising. A beauty & will get even better with some age! Wow!

Monterrei Godello Treixadura 2022

So good at Paprica we bought a bottle for €23 from the restaurant. I’m amazed how cheap bottles and BTG are in Italy & Spain. — 8 months ago

Pelada Dão Touriga Nacional 2018

Nose is classic Touriga National violets, cherry liqueur, and earthy crushed stone. Soft and mouthfilling, it’s intensely minerally on the palate, with enough dark cherry extract fruit to keep it from being too one-dimensional. Tannins are super-soft, and there is abundant acidity.

UPDATE. A few hours later interesting notes of cinnamon are emerging.

Just tasted this with Olé & Obrigado in NYC last week. Beautiful wine. The Carrocel is also not to be missed.
