Made in the natty/dank way, an approach that does nothing for this wine...unless you enjoy the smell of cooked vegetables, raw herbs and tobacco in your red wine. However, there’s also a purity, juiciness and energy that wholly redeems it in the end. A really good wine that could’ve been great. #raulperez #bierzo #mencia — 4 months ago
MAGICAL #WINE ALERT! What a #gem... under-the-radar producer in an under-the-radar region of #Spain #España - #Bierzo in the region of #CastillaYLeón. Explosion of flavours on the first nose and palate, blackberries, black cherries, tobacco, tar... yet all of this softens after 15 minutes of exposure to air and regroups into a marvellous, long, balanced whole. This is the type of #wine that makes #WineLovers happy and hopeful. #vino #InVinoVeritas — 2 years ago
Amazing #bierzo #wine.
Upon opening, aromas of seasoned wet leather, damp leaves, cherry stems. Flavors were harmonious! Acid and tannins prominent on the front and gradually sinking and lightening.
After opening, the smooth cherry shows itself from 10 months of malo. Palate shifts from front to back and the flavors get heavy stewed cherry late. Light, high cherry aromas. The least earthy Mencia I can remember. Opened 2/3/2017 — 2 years ago
