1984 Bierzo Mencía 2017

This was great. Style held up well to (Vintage meathook!) steak and was a good value on the restaurant wine list. Tannins worked well with steak but we’re more robust than I expected. Improved with some air. — 9 days ago

Camino Real Ribeira Sacra Mencia 2016

Lighter and more bright than the inky color would let on. Definitely has that smokiness to it. Didn’t enjoy quite as much as the first time I tried it but my be some bottle/cork variation with this one. — 11 days ago

Corullon Bierzo Mencía 2000

Andrew Holod

From before the producer broke out the single vineyards, so simply labeled Corullon.
2000 was the second vintage I saw in the US. Came in funky 10 pack wooden boxes, as I recall.
Ruby w a more mature edge to the color. Amazing complexity; iron, mineral, bramble fruits, floral, hints of the ocean/iodine, cassis/minty. Palate is fully integrated and still with life.
