Losada Vinos de Finca

Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Muted ripe fruit character and a savoury meatiness is apparent. The oak is well integrated, but a hot alcoholic finish spoils the effect, unbalancing the overall impression.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Restrained, with evident oaky notes and clean blackberry fruit aromas. Very commercial style, quite supported by the smart use of oak and round tannins, perhaps a bit shy to claim its origin. Good finish, persistent.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Leafy herbal aspect to aromatics, with dark fruit underneath. Palate is dark, profound and rich, with a welcome dart of freshness through the core. A typically dry and grainy grip to the tannin gives weight and structure. A slumbering giant of a wine.
