Tilenus Bierzo Roble 2010
This wine is made from 100% mencia. It is aged in both French and American barrels for 8-10 months and spends one year in bottle before release. Intense, spice-accented aromas of raspberry, cherry pit and fresh flowers, along with notes of cola and mocha. Sweet and lively on the palate, offering vibrant red fruit flavors that gain weight in the glass. Fine-grained tannins shape the sappy, penetrating finish. This wine shows the fruit profile and vivacity of a top-notch New World pinot noir, but with more heft.
