Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Tar, liquorice and meaty notes rather than vibrant black fruit styling. A big, bold, fully extracted style, powerful and heady, port-like. Mouth-numbing and hot finish.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Intense, quite marked by the oak, shows ripe and overripe fruit after aeration. Powerful, a bit too warm,, with very nice fruit and some minerality. Long, not very open,

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Oak, vanilla, mint, grassiness line up with the roasted fruit on the nose. Dense extracted fruit, with a punch of acidity, followed by chalky tannins. Weighty, almost hefty, long and concentrated. A bold Porty approach to Bierzo.
