Deep, dark and lovely with a magenta rim.

Tight tannins that soften with air; black plums on the nose that get tart and red on the palate; violets that go from slightly dried to blossoming; lots of silt and clay on the nose that presents as a physical graininess on my tongue. This is a fantastic representative of what Bierzo can offer, and of what the mencia grape can do.

Interesting but overpoweringly mineral-driven. As though it were made from the statues of grapes. Very big, but missing a counterbalancing note. Would be good for pairing with cheese or something complementary.

Good, but too thick and too young and too skin contact. #mencia #bierzo the winemaker is a nice guy and is experimenting.
