Dominio de los Cerezos

Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Savoury, fleshy aromas dominate a tarry mineral dimension too. Clean, correct but lacks vibrant attack and energy. Finishes short.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Meaty, animal, rustic. Dense, with lots of velvety tannins, fills your mouth with savage fruit but keeps a very correct structure. Long, with a very sensual finish. Great experience for those looking for unusual wines but not willing to go for funky experiences.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Lively aromatic appeal: cigar box, spices, herbs, ripe berry fruit. Less of the generosity of flavour on the palate: drying tannins and liquorice mask dark fruits.
