Frivolous confectionery notes. Very young and grapey - not as savoury as it normally is. Made as a drink now Bistro style - by the glass.

Lovely floral exuberance, excellent tannin structure and succulent blue fruit character. Killer value.

Monolithic and a bit Tempranillo-like for 48 hours. Finally settled into being a tightly-wound Mencia; roasted plums and incense. Straightforward and well-made, but nothing more. #mencía #bierzo

Suprisingly complex for a $12 red; dark berries, earthy notes and bright acidity

I had never had mencia but it is similar to tempranillo. Very drinkable.

As it gets some air, warm, savory spices predominate: black pepper, clove, cardamom. Violet and plum skin round out the aroma.

Pretty juicy and light on its feet with blackberry, blueberry, and plum flavors. Acidity is medium and tannin is medium, fine, and well integrated. Those plum skin notes on the nose linger on the finish.

Another lovely little quaffer from Bierzo. I could see this going well with a variety of foods. Mencía is climbing to the top of my list for everyday, food friendly varietals.

Spice and spice. Light blue fruitiness (boysenberry). Anise, pink peppercorns and other warm spices. Mild acid and tannins. Good with lamb shanks

I am a fan for the price.. nice medium body.. not too acidic. I would definitely buy it again.
