From 80yr mencía vines on a pure slate terraced parcel. Black and blue fruit, savory minerality and sassy acidity. Very expressive now, but I would love to see how this ages over the next 5-10 years.

Single parcel Mencía from a southwest facing slope of 80ish year-old vines. Opened yesterday along with the Viñas de Aldea (village version) the Aldea was much more approachable. Today the Seoane has really opened up, but does need a little cellar time (or a big decant) IMHO. Strawberry, graphite, wild herbs, black pepper, very fine tannin and vibrant acidity. 600ish bottles produced.

Nice warmth with a smoky dark cherry flavor. Smooth and supple without too much tannins.
