The wine is clear and bright with a deep ruby colour and presence of legs.

The nose is clean and developing, showing medium intensity aromas of dark plums, blackberries, vanilla, chocolate and hints of lavender. The wine is dry in the mouth with a medium acidity. It has medium(+) ripe rounded tannins and a medium(+) alcohol. It has a medium(+) body and medium(+) intensity flavours of dark plums, blackberries, cocoa and hints of lavender. The finish is medium(+).

It is a very good quality wine. It has a very good overall balance among all structural elements and a very decent flavour concentration and finish, but a better example of this style would be more aromatically complex.

Can drink now, but it has enough tannic structure and flavour concentration to develop some more complex tertiary aromas over the next 2-3 years.

Real yummy for the price, super ripe fruits, high alcohol, tannin, and acid. Great value!

A little hostile on opening but some decanting helped my first Mencia good. Nose with red fruits and a hint of cassis with some clove and spice would definitely open another
