    June 21, 2019 - Drinking very well right now. Great time to crack one open. Has improved with bottle age.

    April 20, 2018 - Carracedo is one of the most reliably excellent Mencias made, and this 2007 is the oldest of 5 different vintages that we own. Opaque in the center of an inch pour with a lighter red outer ring. The nose is invitingly perfumed and fruity. The sip is smoothly textured and buoyed by ample acidity and tannin. The swallow coats the mouth and features a delicious boysenberry and black cherry fruit. Impressively walks a tightrope between being powerful and elegant. A wine that keeps you coming back for more that is so enjoyable both by itself and with most every food.

    March 23, 2018 - Quite tannic, even after eight hours. Not sure if it will improve. Pleasant nose, but not the kind of wine you drink by itself - at least not now.

    48 hours later this is a completely different wine. Much more accessible. The oak is a bit much, but the cherry kirsch with anise flavor and velvety texture make this wine a pleasure to drink. Will try to wait at least two years before opening any more of these.

    April 11, 2017 - Consistently one of the best wines made from the Mencia grape, grown mostly in the northwest part of Spain above Portugal. Tasted for 6 days. Black to the edge with aromas of blueberry, boysenberry, and blackberry. Comes into the mouth with an upfront mix of fruit, drying tannin, and strong acidity. The swallow coats the throat and lasts for minutes. Overall, a powerful, concentrated, and ageworthy wine, that needs additional years of bottle age to round and integrate the acidity and tannin into a more caressing texture and delicious taste.
