This Spanish wine has a tight nose that offers only a whiff of red fruit and bit of spice. Six months barrel aging didn't take over the grapes. There are plenty of those Mencía grapes to smell. Plenty to taste, too, although the oak spice comes through a tad stronger on the palate. Tannins are firm, and the wine feels fresh and young in the mouth. Aging will help, and so will a nice decanting.

Fresh and light red wine, an alternative to accompany fish dishes in the land of Albariño.

16/20 (88/100) Ягодный аромат с нотами брусники, малины, ежевики и черешни с легким тоном сухого картона. Высокая кислотность, сухие танины. Неплохо.
