Akilia "Villa de San Lorenzo" Bierzo Mencia 2013

This wine SHOULD be $16. Direct from Spain, from importer Eric Solomon, we're BLOWING OUT this high elevation red!

(4/21/2016) "There is a new 'village' red, the 2013 Villa de San Lorenzo, which is sourced from the existing vineyards Chano Villar and Lombano, plus a third one planted some 75 years ago that they purchased next to the new Villarin called Fontairo. It was part fermented in cement vats and part in French barrique with indigenous yeasts. Only 30% of the volume matured in third-use French barriques while the rest was kept in the tanks until blending and bottling. The nose screams 'cool climate red' with some hints of acid berries, something earthy and a vegetal twist; the palate is medium-bodied, with almost unnoticeable tannins and soft acidity. Fresh and approachable naked Mencia. 9,200 bottles produced."

(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."

Avancia "Cuvee de O" Valdeorras Mencia 2015

92 Wine Spectator
(12/31/2017) "Espresso, sanguine and gamey flavors give this firm red a savory character, but there's a core of plum and currant fruit. Offers a good balance of firm tannins, balsamic acidity and dense texture. Drink now through 2023. 1,000 cases made. Smart Buy"

Guimaro Ribeira Sacra Tinto 2015

(3/2017) "The 2015 Mencía from Adega Guímaro is an excellent wine, offering up a pure and complex bouquet of pomegranate, chicory, graphite, complex slate soil tones, a touch of blood orange and tree bark. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full and transparent, with lovely focus and grip, good mid-palate depth and impressive intensity of flavor on the long, complex, tangy and modestly tannic finish. This is a fine, classic and light on its feet example of Amandi Mencía in the making and this is very, very impressive for an entry level bottling from Señor Rodríguez! 2017-2045."

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!

(8/2/2018) "Sexy, stylish and complex Bierzo with a wealth of dark graphite and stony aromas, pepper, baking spices and dark berries. Succulent palate with a deep and juicy core of pitch-perfect, ripe and spicy black cherries and blackberries. The tannins are immaculate. Long and regal. Drink or hold."

Bodegas and Vinedos Raul Perez "Vico" Bierzo Mencia 2014

92 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(05/2017) "(raised for a year in two-year-old French oak barrels) Vivid ruby. Suave, highly perfumed scents of red berry preserves, Asian spices and minerals convey a lively floral overtone. Appealingly sweet and focused on the palate, offering intense raspberry and rose pastille flavors and an exotic touch of blood orange. The berry and floral notes repeat emphatically on the very long, silky finish, which is framed by smoothly integrated tannins."

Bodegas and Vinedos Raul Perez "Ultreia" Bierzo Mencia 2015

This gritty and pure Spanish red is a wonderful example of the beauty of the Bierzo region. If you're a fan of classic Pinot Noir, Beaujolais or even Barolo then there's a good chance you'll appreciate what makes this wine so special!
92-93 Our Score

(8/2018) "Raul Perez crafted this red from a parcel planted mainly to mencia, with some bastardo, garnacha tintorera, dona blanca and palomino in the mix as well. This unusual field blend offers some unusual flavors, with the iodine notes of raw meat and lots of black-pepper spice to the ripe fruit. It tastes like its target is roast suckling pig."
