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.

The wine a good wine but not my style. The were nice notes of blackberry but I found too much oak. Tannins were well balanced but the wine was trying to do too much. There was a fake artificial element to it.

2007 Bodega del Abad Tinto Mencia Bierzo. I bought a bunch of this a while ago at a discount price and am extremely pleased. Sweet smoky cocoa on the nose. Cherries and cocoa powder and sweet on he palate. A little dusty but a fantastic value.
