Winemaker's Notes

This wine has got a strong red cherry color, it has mineral and fruity hints coming out from blackberries and blueberries. In the mouth it is complex, vigorous and very tasty.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Mencia. It was raised in stainless steel and bottled without filtration. Dark ruby-colored, it reveals an enticing perfume of spicy black fruits. Concentrated and rich on the palate, it is dense and packed with spicy, savory fruit. It is likely to evolve for another 1-2 years and develop additional complexity although it can be enjoyed now. It is a sensational value."
