Raised for seven months in neutral 225- and 500-liter oak barrels) Brilliant ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of fresh cherry and red berries, candied rose, licorice and smoky minerals. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. Finishes on a suave floral note, displaying very good tenacity, delicate tannins and repeating red berry notes. There's something Pinot Noir-like going on here that's quite appealing. JOSH RAYNOLDS, Vinous

The aromatic, sleek and polished 2015 Adras Mencía has moderate alcohol (12.5%) and a soft palate with moderate acidity, but shows no warmth. The oak is nicely integrated, with just a creamy touch and a hint of smoke that makes me think of wines from the northern Rhône. The palate is sleek and polished, with good balance and clean flavors. 4,668 bottles were filled in July 2016. Drink 2017 – 2020 The Wine Advocate
