Dominio de Tares

Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Still looking youthful, this is a savoury and satisfying mouthful of wine. Fresh and vibrant black fruit character balanced by generous use of US oak. Quite successful overall.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Intense toasty and smoky notes over restrained berry fruit. Lovely fruit in mouth, a bit rustic but original, suave, pleasurable. Nice open finish, dominated by the ripe fruit.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Bold, smoky aromatics, American oak dominates. Again on the palate, oak dominates and sweetens the good underlying base of ripe fruit. Good grip of tannin.
