Madai Origen Bierzo Mencia 2015

$16.99$12.98

Now we know that Bierzo's Mencia grape isn't related to Cabernet Franc, we can enjoy examples like this that don't show any herbal notes. Made all in tank, this is a great example, loaded with red berry and strawberry fruit framed by subtle notes of spice and fresh, summer, flowers. The fruit is sweet, the finish dry, and the bottle empty all too soon. A great Spring/Summer/Fall sipper.

Good, not great. Nose is extremely understated, showing mostly alcohol with big oak notes. Finally opened up with some subtle dark fruit after an hour or so. Mellow at most on the palate. Light and not particularly fruity, some metallic notes. Enjoyable, if not super memorable.

smells of earth, a little animal, candied red licorice... this has lots of oak and red fruit...does not feel particularly terroir driven....where is the delicate minerality, red berries and mencia subtlety? :(

Trying this Mencia for first time-- I found the fruit and aromatics balanced the typical bitter tannins well. Upgraded from 8.9 to 9.0 after a bit! At Jaleo Bethesda
