A hint of rubbery reduction, which is nothing abnormal for Mencía, blows off quickly and leaves mostly black fruit aromas. A stout palate is on the full and blocky side, while this tastes of blackberry and cassis. Those same dark fruit flavors linger on a thick finish with toast and coffee notes. Drink through 2022.
