This a pleasant light bright fruity red with strawberry-cherry candy, some pepper and herbs. Lively fresh and tasty...

Another fine, fruity-savoury example of mencía from Bierzo, with balanced, succulent acids and moderate-firm tannins....

July 2014: Nothing all that complex, but lovely aromas of strawberry and cherry, with an intriguing licorice note, then black pepper emerging on the finish; young, from a less-appreciated Spanish appellation, but also pleasantly, mouth-fillingly rich; excellent value.

April 2015: No changes. Basically, it's a pleasant, textbook Mencía that points to the varietal's appeal (while hinting at its higher-end complexity and depth) and goes well with a wide range of casual fare.
