The nose is full of white flowers, sweet cream and some melon. The mouth takes on a slightly different profile. The white flowers continue with a touch of green straw. Some stone and citrus. This is refreshing and full with nice acidity but the finish had a citrus bight that didn’t appeal to me.

Pnp'd, this had a slow start with bright cherries on the nose but the pallet was thin. After 30-60 minutes of air this really evolved nicely with the fruit darkening and the mouthfeel becoming more plush. Really fun cellar defender.

(Spanish Tasting at Vino, Hollywood, Florida) This unoaked Mencia has a beautiful ruby red color and a nose of wet earth, florals, and ripe berries. It tastes of black cherries, dark berries, spice, and cracked pepper. Unfortunately, there is a sharp edge; almost a bitterness that you can taste and feel on your tongue, that is very distracting and unpleasant. This takes away from it's otherwise positive attributes, it's rich fruit and spiciness. The wine is medium bodied with a moderate ending.

Wow, best Godello yet (at least among the few we've had). Pale yellow in glass. Surprisingly rich bouquet of honeysuckle, apricot and white peach, carries to palate with a remarkably rich plushness, but along with the bracing acidity it is able to maintain balance, freshness and an overall lightness that makes a fine pairing for a range of whitefish, Asian food and other similar delicate dishes, as well as nutty-flavored cheeses. Minerality, but unlike the neighboring Albarinos, not so much in the saline direction. Overall a lovely wine, textbook expression of the grape and a great value.

My first Mencia wine. Reminds me of red Zin. Nice fruit with modest tannins and pleasant finish. Good value.

A nice surprise, having let this very inexpensive bottle rest in the cellar. Granny Smith apples on the nose. Explosive acidity, oily texture, and more tart apple on the palette.

Floral, honey, fresh nose. Layers of citrus, pear, and apricot with a touch a sweetness. Long rich finish. Will definitely buy again.

Light gold. Nose of cream, lime pineapple, a touch of honeydew and fresh grass. Pleasant weight with a mouth watering tart palate.

This surely needed more air time as it was consumed at cellar temp, but as it warmed the spicy fruited nose came up nicely. Full of acid it was crisp and clean in the mouth a good with the fatty foods of the day. Mostly bright cherry fruit, but some nuttiness and spices in the background. A little disjointed so it may be going to sleep. I will try and hold my final bottle for 5 years to see how much Mencia changes after its full nap in the cellar. Great qpr wine, for sure.

Thought was really quite good for a 12 dollar wine. Very clean, deep and rich, with peanuts and mint on the nose (no obvious oak) and dark fruits and spice in the mouth. We tasted this blind in a collection of unusual wines. Surprised to see the community average so low (86 at time of writing). When it's well-made, as it is here, mencia is cleaner and richer than Chinon but also has the potential to be as delicate as good Burgundy.

Let it breathe for an hour. Then enjoy.

The nose is far better developed than it was the last time we had a bottle. We just got back from a week of wine tasting in Walla Walla and the Willamette, and this one would fare quite well in a tasting like those you do at a winery. Complex, rich, and paired VERY well with a spicy Moroccan curry-like dish. Could stand another year or so if you want to hold it - but not more than that.

Solidly made red, with a fruit forward red and dark fruit profile. Plenty of acid and tannins to go the distance. I'm really curious to see how this ages. From all reports this stuff gets better in 10 years. Thanks periko for the encouragement to drink a bottle young to see if I enjoyed it. Like Burgundy, with a Spanish flare. I think this grape is a winner, when done properly.

Quite young, and a little difficult to say what it's about, as the Mencia grape is somewhat unusual. But overall this is very enjoyable, and has a sharp focus to the fruit and minerality that really sets it apart. Very good value, and it will be interesting to see how this develops.

Medium intensity purple color. Quite Beaujolais like. Light fragrant nose with berry character. Initial mouth feel a touch sweet, but balanced by long and supple tannins. My first Mencia. A decent eveyday wine bit nothng more.

Deep red color, floral nose, lots of berries and cherry on the palate, average length finish - enjoyable. I had with a big salad of roasted chicken and greens but i can defintely see it going with pizza.
