1984 Bierzo Mencía 2018

This is a natural, unfiltered wine that although produced within the DO Bierzo region, falls out of the rules of production, so it ends up with the IGT clssification. Dried flowers, blueberries, and smokey vanilla on the nose, continued floral aspects on the palate as well as fresh cherries and moist earth. Quite nice, more minerality than I expected and smooth as silk tannins. Medium finish. Price/quality relation is amazing, €15 the whole bottle at the bar in Madrid — 22 days ago

Deep ruby. Powerful black/blue fruit, incense, Indian spice and vanilla aromas on the expressive nose, with a smoky mineral quality adding urgency. Offers sweet, densely packed boysenberry, cherry cola and spicecake flavors that spread out steadily on the palate, picking up an exotic hint of star anise and a touch of licorice on the back half. Lush, broad and seamless in character, finishing with superb energy, sharp delineation and smooth, even tannins that add structure and subtle grip. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2019) — 12 days ago

As Caborcas Single Vineyard Mencía 2014

Loved the spiciness of this Spanish beauty. The Garnacha exploded on the finish the first night. Stuck the cork in it over night and it was even better the second night. — 20 days ago

9.1

Bright ruby. Spice-tinged cherry and black raspberry aromas show very good clarity and pick up suggestions of musky flowers and earth with air. Nicely concentrated but nervy on the palate, offering subtly sweet red/dark fruit flavors, exotic chewing tobacco and black cardamom qualities. Shows sharp delineation and spicy thrust on the persistent finish, which features gentle tannins and a suave floral nuance. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2019) — 12 days ago
