Pétalos Bierzo Mencía 2017

Radiant, elegant, pure. Sweet and sappy bing cherry and raspberry fruit infused with Asian spice, licorice and savory minerality. Firm tannins and bright acidity. Seriously underpriced, which is fine by me. — 13 days ago

Always so good and such a great value.

Almost all Bierzo Mencia’s are undervalued, especially for structured and elegant wines.

Bodega Cuatro Rayas

Vendimia Nocurna Rueda Verdejo 2018

Nose of lychee, lime, almond shell, and sea breeze.

Melon, green apple, lemon, lime, and a touch of peach on the finish. Medium acidity with a touch of lingering alcohol heat.

I don't drink a lot of Spanish whites, but I think I should start! Tasty wine and nice value.

Ultreia Saint Jacques Bierzo Mencía 2017

Raul is one of those special and unique producers whose wines stand out in just about any field with others of similar quality. I could fill pages with tasting notes, but I feel it’s more appropriate to simply reiterate that these wines are beautiful, complex, superbly crafted and downright delicious. It is nearly impossible not to drink a whole bottle. I’m giving an extra point or two for the Saint Jacques Mencía cuvée because of the exceptional value it delivers at well under $20. This would embarrass many village level Burgundies at three or even four times the price. — 19 days ago

Quite Valtuille Mencía 2016

Dec 19 Bachelor drink before new job. Relax after days of fixing broken stuff. Was worry it will be another bio d wine but it is not. Nice chalky charcoal nose. There is black fruit and bitter liquorice. Abit burgundian. — 3 days ago

Intressant tolkning av Tempranillo. Hundraårig vingård, oympade stockar, ren sandjord. Blåfruktig smak med viss mineralitet. Inte överdrivet extraherad, torr och bra fräschör. — 6 days ago

Bierzo Godello Vinos De Fnca 2018

White peach with some matchstick reductive notes and a salty whiff in the nose. On the palate at first the structure comes through - broad and full yet light & fresh. Great juicy acidity with peach at first with spicy, salty lemons on the mid palate and boosted further with a steely mineral finish. Deftly oaked and carries the 14% alc effortlessly. This is a very nice wine - kind of a salty, spicy southern Burgundy. — 2 days ago

La Vizcaína La del Vivo Lomas de Valtuille White Blend 2017

Impromptu dinner: my wife happened to pick up a salmon filet, and I happened to pick up this bottle. Had poached salmon and sticky rice with carrots and white wine butter sauce. This Spanish white is mostly like a Chablis, but with an earthy/savory dimension. Very nice! I only wish I had added some cream to the sauce - this wine could hold up to more richness. — 20 hours ago
