    April 17, 2018 - We pulled this 14 year old wine to see how well Mencia ages. Opaque with a narrow ring of red on the edge. Fine aromas of blackberry, mulberry, and violets. Bright acidity and tannin that is drying and lightly astringent. Not a powerhouse but certainly elegantly enjoyable. The finish is very long and throat coating. Nothing old, tired, or bland.

    March 4, 2018 - Still going, but fruit is drying some. Dark garnet with no bricking. Brooding deep dark fruit and tobacco nose, needed a few hours to show its stuff. Tannins more resolved the 2nd day where it showed better. Acid is in balance with the dark blackberry bramble, but the tannins still ask for some food to pair. Recommend giving it at least a few hours of decant time, don't see an upside to further ageing.

    January 1, 2012 - Lovely wine. Nice and funky, with a good tannin structure, pure fruit in the blueberry/plum mode, stableized by some old wood, pencil shavings, nice herbs, acidity that's great with food and makes it interesting on it's own. This was a magnum bottle in fine shape - no meaning in waiting any longer for this.

    July 27, 2011 - Dark red. Lots of funk, blueberry, pencil shavings and some red fruit notes as well. Delicious pure fruit flavours and a long tannic finish. An excellent wine.
