Publication Score Comments
The Wine Advocate 90 The entry-level red is the 2015 Mencía, an unoaked, fresh, young and fleshy red. This is always a champion in its category showing intense aromas of balsamic herbs, even a touch of mint, ripe blackberries, dark cherries and a juicy, chewy palate with very fine tannins. Ideal for the table. 150,000 bottles produced.

Wine & Spirits Magazine 89 With its spark of red fruit, this mencía has a bright freshness. The structure is tight and firm, but acidity makes it juicy and easy to drink.
