    June 2, 2015 - I've had this wine 4 years in my cellar before drinking it. I rather should have invested in a nice Chianti Classico instead of buying this one for 14 €. Not my cup of tea.

    BTW: Drinking window wide open. Dark, full bodied and - well - rough.

    October 15, 2014 - Overall, some nice qualities: a savory note of violet and olive but whatever delicacy of nose existed was lost on the palate of overwhelmingly dry tannin. A 15-second finish. I am intrigued by the vague "sauvage" note but not enough to buy more and age it. Perhaps I am just not sold on Mencia, or Bierzo. At least, for Purple Drank, it's light on its feet and has a somewhat subdued flavor profile. But at six years post-vintage I would expect a little more softening.
