The Full Review

If you are a Mencia fan and haven't given this bottle a try, then you're in for a treat. It’s a bit of a modern take on the normal style, with a good amount of oak, but not enough to take away from the inherent qualities of this wine. We still get savory aromas of black pepper and wild berries pulled from freshly turned soil, but it is all balanced with the slight depth of fruit promoted by the softened tannin.
