Always a pleasure. We start to crave these as the temperature drops. Big & tall velvet smoking jacket.

Yummy, meaty, schisty, balanced tannins and acid. Just lovely to drink; could down a whole bottle by myself.

Fruity, medium red. Wines from west of Bierzo, Spain become more elegant. Purchased from Central Wines on Columbus.

Good nose. Chewy but thin. Not worth the price.

Drank over about an hour. This was my first foray into Mencia but I can tell you I will be back! Red fruits on the nose with some crushed stone and white pepper. A sip is peppery with Medium/medium+ acidity and alcohol and a lingering finish with mouth coating tannins

Delicious and enjoyable. Refreshing strawberry, violet, and tobacco flavors. Very good for $16. WA rated 93 pts. I would say that is on the high end of the rating range but it is very good. 91 pts
