Absolutely delicious Mencía-based blend. It had a great mix of fruity and earthy, combining notes of plum, cherry, and boysenberry with notes of black tea, coffee, and herbs. Checked all the boxes for a beautiful weeknight bottle that would pair well with many different dishes. Blend of Mencía, Bastardo, and Garnacha Tintorera. 5/15/23. — 2 months ago
Mencia grape from 80 year old vines on slate soil. Top wine, very aromatic, red fruit but stony undertone. Surprising, very high quality, Drinks beautifully now but has a good ten years in it. Great acidity and pure balance. — a month ago

Très bon vin, bio nature, cépage Mencia, 2.1g de sucre. Bien balancé, mi-corsé, assez doux, excellent avec viande rouge, gibier, BBQ. Un excellent match avec le poivre noir. $19 SAQ — 13 days ago
Medium ruby color with a slight orange rim. Aromas and flavors of red cherry and plums with distinct hints of baking spices, minerals and smoke. Good balance and structure. Nicely integrated tannins with medium body and acidity. Juicy and soft. Thank you for sharing, Ron B! — a month ago
On the nose - flowery and lots of blackberries/strawberries.
On the palette - blackberries, sour cherry, and stone/gravel. Somewhat earthy, but not funky.
I was surprised at the tannin (med+) and has good acidity. Would go well with food.
Reminds me of a Beaujolais, but less of that jammy character and more minerality. Longer finish too. Decently complex and interesting wine. — 3 months ago
