A great example of how fresh and elegant good Mencia from Bierzo can be. Silky red fruit with nice minerality and a hint of herbaciousness.

Very soft. Light pepper and fruit and some rounding tannins.

Served with braised lamb neck dish. The iron note in this wine is omnipresent. This is blood juice. All cement ferment. Lots going on in this wine. There is something special here.

Coming from northwest province of Leon (Spain) the clay and slate soil help to produce these lush aromas and flavors of licorice, minerality, hint of spice and wild flower floral components. Nice medium body wine. That's what I'm talking about! I'm drinking it all tonight! ;)

A big hit of sulphur upon opening, but that blew off with some air. Solid, if unspectacular, and a good widely available reference point Mencia.

Been tasting Petalos for 6 years now. One of the best QPR for Bierzo Mencias. A more brooding tannic Mencia with lots of dark fruit flavors and nice oak integration. 2013 is probably the heaviest vintage I've tasted in terms of alcohol.

Red fruits, roses, and pencils. A beautiful and good-value wine with fine, gripping tannins. Very nice example of the contemporary wines that Spain offers.

Good, but tonight a little heavier handed than I like from this typically.
