Clean clear nose of cherries, bright and crunchy. Lacks body but plays a role as a light red.

Oxidative nose; wet wool, slightly challenging. No obvious fruit in the palate, dry tangy finish.

A private lunch (Restaurant Librije's Zusje **, Amsterdam, NL): Lovely balance of juicy fruit, slightly resinous oak and freshness; elegant but with nice intensity and length.

Prince Saturday tasting - Random selection (Prince Sydney, 40 Hansard Street): On the nose cherry, spices and cream. More cherry and spice flavours on the palate, though the spice element is more subdued, fine but persistent tannin joins the fruit. Very nice indeed.

The Estaladina grape is similar in character to the Mencia grape. The wine is very similar too. The wine is fruity but understated. A touch mineralic and tannic - noticeable but not too much. Nice wine, expressive, medium to full bodied.

Somewhat disappointing for the top wine of this bodega whose Mengoba white I found wonderful. Maybe an off bottle? Sort of peppery, dusty, even metallic nose. Much nicer in the mouth, with some of the sweet silkiness that mencia seems to have in common with pinot noir.

I'm told this has a bit of brett, but I'm not that great at picking up brett. It smells delicious to me. A bit jammy, quite oaky and upfront at first, but it mellows with time. The palate is smooth as silk, fruity and jubey with a small hint of alcohol heat on the back palate, otherwise quite balanced.

I love to tell people that I reckon good Mencia looks like a cross between Northern Rhone and Burgundy. As I blurted out ‘I'm torn between Northern Rhone and Burgundy’ I should have immediately headed to Bierzo. This is a delicious wine crammed with black cherries, freshly grated ginger and fresh flowers. It is silky in the mouth with good intensity and a stony finish.

Needs a lot of air and a comparatively high temperature to reveal what is has to offer: spicy, changeing nose with oak and vanilla and earthy citrusy notes that turn into butter and nuts. Clarity and focus in the mouth, mineral notes too. Delicious fruit aftertaste, good acidity. Like an excellent cross of oldfashioned white Rioja and white Burgundy of at least villages quality.

Identical notes on the second day, perhaps a little more apple character. Went well with a manchego.

Beautiful wine for summer, so good infact that a whole bottle disappeared in about an hour, on a school night no less. It's fresh and clean with notes of tropical fruit and minerality.

I found this to have tart apple undertones - a decent effort but has room for improvement. Visited the bodega in Spain - winemaker/owner is very personable, kind, and generous (treated us to lunch at his favorite local hangout). I think he is still experimenting with finding his flavor profile that he is going to be happy with. Don't rule him out for future tastings.

Really punchy nose of fresh flowers and sour cherry. The cherry fruit has a little creaminess up front and some tart volatilty down back, in a most pleasant way I might add. There are mineral and meat notes and the overall package displays good poise and excellent balance. An excellent red wine of great character.

Color: Light gold.

Nose: Delicate and perfumed, with a bright, fresh bouquet of blooming white flowers and honey. The fruit is on the tropical side, with kiwi, mango, and passionfruit leading the way. There's also a pungent herbal/spic note in the background that I can't quite pinpoint---clove or star anise maybe? Quite exotic, overall.

Palate: Strangely mute here. The texture and structure are good, with nice acid and a smooth, rounded mouthfeel, but there's almost no flavor. Truly is like drinking slightly viscous, acidic water with a small squeeze of lemon juice. I can't explain it. I can't remember a wine that showed as much on the nose and as little on the palate.

Que ganas de visitar personalmente la zona, empiezan a hacerse cosas interesantes y sobre todo con recorrido. Cagas del Narcea, here we goooo.

Por supuesto hablamos de Albarín blanco y madera. El tiempo le ha sentado de fabula, nariz oxidativa y compleja, floral, sacando suelo, la barrica le ha dado la redondez que necesitaba arropando a toda esa fruta madura.

En boca viene la sorpresa, nada pesada, fresca, balsamica, con gran acidez, un manojo de especias y plantas aromaticas.

No creo que me fuera a un jura a ciegas, aquí hay mucha mas densidad y opulencia en nariz.

Muy rico si vas buscando algo en la gama de los blancos con enjundia. Acompañó muy bien a una pizza del domino's mientras que el Real Madrid ganaba la decima!!!!. Asturias patria queridaaaaaa.

Good solid showing for the Godello grape. Elegant but not too expressive. Good structure so perhaps with time it will become more expressive.

Club Lunch #1 - 2014: Coffee, quince, floral and orange rind aromas. Palate has impressive length, the sugar sweetness takes and back seat to the textured and layered fruit. Unique and undoubtedly delicious.

The oxidative character ala Jura or Jerez is first and foremost here - which meant my wife didn't enjoy it. I did, but not as much as CSW's and DaveStenton's notes led me to hope I might: all their descriptions sound awesome to me, but this bottle presented a little, well, thinner and simpler - a bit more shrill - than I hoped, not as salty or savory. Maybe a little better the second night, with more air, and as it warmed up. I'd be happy enough to drink more, but didn't find it a screaming bargain at the price and will not go camp outside the store so that I can restock first thing tomorrow morning.

Medium-dark, lively purple. Attractive berryish nose. On the palate, loads of soft, billowing fruit, generous but perfectly balanced acidity, and not much tannin. Is there oak here? If so, very little. Very very enjoyable, and with enough character to repay attention if you feel like giving it. 14%.

Atlantic Spain Tasting (Toast East Dulwich): Quite a brooding nose: some spice and sweat alongside plum and cocoa with lifted/leafy top notes. Lots of sweet fruit upfront but fresh and mineral to finish. Not that serious (I wouldn't cellar it) but very drinkable. 16.5/20.
