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. — 20 days ago

Always so good and such a great value.

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

Mosier Hills Estate Mencía 2017

Bought at winery and travelled back to NY with us (via united airlines luggage). We intended to hold this for a while but the cork was leaking real bad. So we opened it, nervous it might be undrinkable. Turns out to be pretty tasty. The cork issue might’ve caused it to mature faster or something because it’s really savory & meaty but it’s still fruity too. There is the tiniest bit of that fizz on your tongue that you’d expect from a zero sulfur wine, so I guess it is kind of corked. Maybe we’ve been drinking too much natty wine lately but this was tasted like it was mostly fine. I want to find more bottles of it in NY cuz it’s an interesting wine, but nervous if this bottle was messed up by travel (none of the others we flew with were) or if this could be a trend with their wines. — 20 days ago

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. — a month ago
