Really fun to drink. Body of a Cabernet Franc but with sweet fruit and savory herbs (not green). Yum.

I was curious about wine made of Mencía. Adrás made good Godello--I bought that bottle for the same reason: grape curiousity. This one is not as interesting as the Godello. It is quite bright and acidic, full of red cherries and pomegranate. The oak tannin is not quite integrated but supplies some texture. I wouldn't get this one again I don't think but still want to try more wines made if Mencía.

Rich slightly underripe & underrated fruit, touch of allspice & edelberry #mencia

Not a good wine to drink by itself. Like a smoky, dusty cru Beaujolais. Nose is bubble gum with smoke and dust. Went well with a variety of foods. I'm reserving judgment.

This wine started out pale, earthy and lean. With several hours of exposure to air it bloomed. Deeper color, nose of tart cherry an wet stone. Medium bodied with firm, drying but fine grained tannin. Worked pretty well with mushroom risotto.
