Trevor scored this wine: 91/100
This wine is made from 100% mencia, and hails from Valdeorras, Spain, which is adjacent to Bierzo, the region most known for mencia. It is full of character, complexity, and freshness. It offers notes of black cherry, wild blueberry and raspberry, stoney minerals, anise, smoke, white pepper and baking spices, and elegant touches of potpourri, leather, black tea, and vanilla. The wine has a beautifully integrated, seamless structure, and yet almost high acidity and tannins. The finish is quite long. An assertive yet graceful wine, and very satisfying. Would make an excellent pairing with many pork dishes, but also with venison and other game meats. Tasted Aug. 2017.
