Winemaker Notes

Covered ripe sweet-cherry color, with a purple, clean and shiny hue. A mixture of red and black fruit, spices (black pepper, cinnamon), chocolate, young toasty wood and a mineral balsamic background on the nose. Full, fleshy, velvety, very good structure without being astringent, sweet tannins, balanced glyceric fruit. Balsamic finish with licorice notes and a sweet bitterness in the finish.

Professional Ratings

  • 90
    Definitely a Mencía, with that love-it-or-hate-it, telltale acid edge. From the hill town of Valtuille. Full of smoke and dusky flowers, with a strong grip of tannin from seven months’ ageing in French, Russian and American oak. A polyglot with plenty of bold character.

Primarily found in the Bierzo, Ribeira Sacra and Valdeorras regions of Spain and in the Dão of Portugal (where it is called Jaen), Mencia is an early ripening, low acid grape that can produce wines of great concentration, complexity and ageability. And yet Mencia once suffered from a poor reputation and deemed capable of producing simple and light red wines. Post-phylloxera growers would grow this variety on low, fertile plains, which produced high yields and uncomplicated finished wines. Somm Secret—The recent rediscovery of the ancient, abandoned vines planted on rugged hillsides of deep schist has unveiled the potential of Mencia and added discredit to its old reputation.

One of the few northwestern Spanish regions with a focus on a red variety, Bierzo, part of Castilla y León, is home to the flowery and fruity Mencia grape. Mencia produces balanced and bright red wines full of strawberry, raspberry, pomegranate, baking spice, pepper and black licorice. The well-drained soils of Bierzo are slate and granite.
