Cool berry and a whisper of earthy funk. Fine firm tannins and a bit if cocoa on the finish. Sneaky acid. Drinks at or maybe above its price point. Glad I have more.

Picked up on the distress market. Super value. Rich, deep, complex. Fleshy, smokey, minerally. Makes me want to learn more about mencia and what's happening in Bierzo.

Suprisingly good Tuesday night drinker. Even more so after sitting over night.
