    September 8, 2019 - Puissant et riche mais bien fait.
    Mures et épices avec des tanins charnus
    et une belle acidité. Long et capiteux.

    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.
