A characterist Mencía with all the subtlety and elegance this can entail. Attractive cherry red colour with violet tones on the rim. Powerful nose of intense fruity aromas of raspberries and cherries, as well as flowery hints of violets in perfect combination with oak spices and fragrances of liquorice, chocolate, toffee and vanilla. Smooth, full bodied and elegant on the palate with retronasal lingering flavours of toasted oak with a long and smooth finish. We recommend serving at 18º C in a fine large round glass. “Toasty oak notes mingle with wild berry in this alluring red. The tannins are firm, but well integrated, the acidity is lively. Drink now through 2006. Wine Spectator Rating 89
