  • 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.
