This wine is a reality check on Mencia. If you saw the terroir and land, you would know. Literally grows above graphite. It is a amazing. This is where it picks up the intense crushed rock minerality road dust notes. This reminds me of a Morgon or other Cru Beaujolais. This is a real Mencia and it
Decanted this one for 2-3 hours and drank over 2 hours. Clearly young but a very nice wine. Dark cherry, blueberry and herbs. A bit wild with enough sweet fruit to keep it balanced. Acidity came with time open. I would guess this has the stuffing for 5-10 years at least. Refreshing to not have a wine with too much oak. Great with game meats. Mencia from Ribeira Sacra is delicious.
