Guys, this is stainless. Stop with the oak garbage..
Practicing organic, nice structure with dark fruits and bold acidity. Food wine! Food wine! Food wine!

2014 vintage. This had great dark fruit and spice. Some oak and some lingering tannins. I'd love o try more bottles from here.

I can see why Mencía used to get confused with Cabernet Franc: herbaceous, with slightly underripe tannins, raspberries, and pencil shavings.

Lovely light body but a bit too spritzy and raw to showcase the potential of Mencia.

Everything I want in a summer red, hence the high rating. No pretension. Focused berry fruit, minerality, violet petal. Enjoyed it after 10 minutes in the fridge. Great value as well.
