A black cherry color with intense violet hues. Aromas are dominated by ripe red fruits, minerals and blue flowers. Fine, concentrated and exquisite on the palate, it is fleshy, fragrant, and full bodied. 

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A silky texture carries harmonious, if somewhat muted, flavors of red plum, tobacco, sage and mineral in this focused red. Light, well-integrated tannins and lively acidity give this balance. Should bloom in a year or two. Drink now through 2024. 1,500 cases made, 250 cases imported." - TM

Jeb Dunnuck:
"Cherries, darker fruits, and leafy, peppery herbs define the 2016 Valle del Cua Mencia Bierzo. It’s medium-bodied, fleshy and charming, with a delicious, gulpable style. Drink up." - Jeb Dunnuck (3/27/2019)
