Fuentes del Silencio "Las Quintas'" Castilla y Leon Mencia 2016

93+ Our Score
(12/2018) Ted Vance is the owner of The Source Imports. He perfectly illustrates why their newest Spanish producer is truly something special. "Las Quintas is a blend of 85% Mencia, 13% Alicante Bouschet and 2% Palomino. The vineyard soils are composed primarily of sand and silt. With the influence of Mount Teleno, this vineyard area within the Jamuz Valley has the largest diurnal change between night and day. The soil, icy nighttime temperatures, high acidity and 100% stem inclusion during its forty-five day fermentation renders a bright, tense wine that gushes with wild red fruit, compelling textures and loads of charm and pleasure. This is the most sensual wine in the range from the moment the cork is pulled and, like Las Jaras, it doesn't let up for hours into the next day."

Fuentes del Silencio "Las Jaras'" Castilla y Leon Mencia 2016

91+ Our Score
(12/2018) Ted Vance is the owner of The Source Imports. He perfectly illustrates why their newest Spanish producer is truly something special. "A blend of Prieto Picudo, Mencia and Alicante Bouschet, Las Jaras comes from vineyards located at the south of the Jamuz Valley. The soils are colder in this area with a higher content of iron and clay. The grapes were co-fermented over thirty-five days with native yeasts and 75% of its stems in large vertical French oak fermenters. After pressing, the wine is put back into the same large oak vat for nine months of aging. This is a wine of tension, vertical structure, texture and freshness imparted by its cold soils and the strong diurnal shift between day and nighttime temperatures. Once the cork is pulled the wine's frequency rings at a high tone and finds its footing within fifteen minutes and begins its vertical climb, which carries on with almost more strength into its second day."

Peza do Rei Ribiera Sacra 2016

90 Our Score
(10/2018) This is 100% Mencia grape from the steeply sloped region of Ribiera Sacra in the Northwest of Spain. Taut red berry fruits are accented with red-rock earth, muted red florals and dusty minerality flavors. The acidity is medium-plus, the tannins are medium and the body is medium-full. Try with slow-cooked stews this winter!

Casar de Burbia "Heritage" Bierzo Mencia 2015

90+ Our Score
90 Wine Advocate
(8/2017) "The straightforward red 2015 Casar is pure Mencía that is fruit driven and with the creaminess of some time in oak containers of different sizes. The palate was medium-bodied with some fine-grained, slightly dusty tannins and pleasant flavors. One for the table. 33,345 bottles produced."
