Bodega del Abad 2005 Carracedo Mencía (Bierzo)

From 80-year-old vines planted on steep slopes, this shows an early blast of buttery oak, but underneath there's mineral, coffee, lemon peel and potent fruit. Power and tightness define the palate, which is also intensely mineral as it teeters on the border of overoaked and leathery. Michael Schachner
