To me the best part of Mencia is its tendency to aromatically possess a richer and riper fruit character on the nose, but then on the palate a juxtaposition to tart, brambly fruit thats crisp and always contains a certain vitality to it. Balanced extract here, mineral tannins and acidic cut typical of schist soils, but there’s a little extra plumpness that’s really appealing too. Points for the price of course

Lovely Bierzo. Very fresh and mineral quality with crunchy red fruit, mint and savory spices. Very well balanced and simply delicious.

6/2020. Another nice old vine wine from Spain. Flavor and finish very smooth.

11/19. Really nice! Bold flavor and easy to drink with or without food. Found a 2010 last week and for me it was not as good as the 2016. Less flavor and body.

Third time luckier on this wine - have found Mencia reds underwhelming in the past but this has a better fruit versus tannin. Went well with Duck Leg.

Me parece que no voy a repetir este vino. Demasiado alcoholico. No vale lo que cuesta. Le falta algo. No mejora aireándose. No repito más este vino
