Tangy cherry and mixed berry fruit over a core of stoniness. Faint tannins, great balance.

Love it. #mencia #oldvines #bierzo #alvaropalacios #palacios Racy acidity, stones, violets and earth. For me oak is perfectly integrated. Personally wouldn't pay 2x Petalos.

Beautiful red fruit flavors with meaty/mushroom notes. Hints of cinnamon and herbs. Wonderful texture and acidity!

I love Mencia. Notes of raspberry, earth and pepper. Medium bodied and savoury with dry fine tannins. Like a hypothetical blend of Burgundy and Rhone with restrained use of oak. A little closed at 3 years. It will open up and show more complexity in the coming years.
