I clearly underestimated the 2014 La Vigne de Sancho Martín when I tasted it last year, and I'm glad Pérez submitted it again as I was immediately blown away by its strong personality, perfumed and subtle nose and was devastated when I saw my comments from April 2016. I'm tempted to say this is Mengoba's finest offering to date. It's super elegant with a rare combination of power and finesse. As I mentioned, it's a single-vineyard red from a plot that used to be owned by someone called Valentín in the village of Espanillo in the zone of Sancho Martín. The field blend is mainly Mencía with some 15% Garnacha Tintorera and a little Godello. The grapes are part destemmed, part full-cluster fermented in a 1,000-liter stainless steel vat and then transferred to 600-liter demi-muids for malolactic and 12 months aging. Simply superb!
