Soft nose of Indian spices, beef jerky, and dark purple flowers. Upon tasting there is a flash in the pan sensation of Northern Rhone Syrah that continues into a black and blue showcase of perfectly ripe fruit. Lavender is there, violets are there, and also a touch of dried clove. The finish is long with a beautiful continuation of everything that's mentioned above. This is an absolutely stunning expression of Mencia.

2016 -- great young wine, best served ever so slightly chilled. Red and blue fruits, solid tartness, subtle hints of vanilla that give the wine a Rhone-esque feel. Chalky/slate finish. Light texture; an early summer delight!

To finish off after the Grand Cru Tasting one of my favourite Wine styles - Mencia from Ribeira Sacra In Spain. Very savoury yet full bodied. Very easy to like. Bottle disappears quickly.

Lighter than I usually like but so much body! Has some pepper and spice and is very well balanced.

Tight at first but opened up after an hour. As somebody else pointed out, like a mix of pinot and syrah. Violets, cedar, earth, cassis, leather. My first dance with mencia. Very nice!

Needed some time open to get anywhere, but the result is delicious. Dark cherry/blackberry fruit, stone, bit of dungy notes and dried fruit. Great length, tastes wonderfully sun soaked.
