Casar de Burbia Mencío Bierzo Casar 2015 Bottle
Staff Comments: From Bierzo, Spain and just fantastic! Deep colors of purple with violet reflections. Aromas of Blackberries, raspberries, touches of sweet spice and leather. Medium bodied, yet full of flavor. What a complex wine for the price! Dark fruits of blackberry, black plums, ripe red raspberries are balanced with white pepper, Madagascar vanilla and layers of earth and minerals. Balance is the name of the game here. Starts rather fruit forward but evolves almost instantly to a gripping amount of acidity, just before you think its too much the wine evolves again to a smooth vanilla and smokey finish. Great Wine to pair with Grilled flank steak.

James SucklingBrimming with sour-cherry, cranberry and floral aromas on the nose, this is a vibrant and racy mencía with polished tannins and acidity and a long, star-bright mineral finish. Drink or hold.
Wine AdvocateThe straightforward red 2015 is pure Mencía that is fruit driven and with the creaminess of some time in oak containers of different sizes. The palate was medium-bodied with some fine-grained, slightly dusty tannins and pleasant flavors. One for the table.
