La Vizcaina La Vitoriana Lomas de Valtuille Bierzo Mencia 2017

Starts out with a bit of reductive stink. Serious blackberries and tart fruits, with long acids. This can be enjoyed now with a long decant. Lots of material and extraction and concentration, ie this is a big wine, but the fruit is a bit sidelined. Generous take is this needs another 5+ years to come together. But it is pretty high tannin and drying... and way too extracted for my taste now. Maybe the fruit will stand up with time. — 19 days ago

5 Valdeobispo Mencía

A very serious 100% Mencía, Valdeobispo is sourced from a 1.6 hectare plot planted in 1910 in the eponymous lieu-dit in Villafranca del Bierzo. This was the first vintage of this single-vineyard bottled under Cantariña’s label. Prior to this, grapes were sold to their neighbor Raúl Pérez, who actually advised them to vinify this plot on its own. Fermented in oak foudre and aged in used barriques for 12 months. Unusually dark ruby color, quite concentrated, slightly rustic. Aromas of red fruit, hibiscus, floral and earthy notes. Round and powerful, smooth tannins — 22 days ago

Ultreia Saint Jacques Mencía

One of my first Spanish wines. An old world wine with a beautiful nose of cherry and mineral earth, stone perhaps. And the palate supports that with a nuance of acidity that's both strong but very controlled and long. This wine I will remember. Balanced, light oak, and delicious. — 15 days ago
