20 Baltos El Bierzo D.o. Mencia Dominio de Tares 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Harvest was carried out manually followed by an immediate pre-fermentation cold-soak for 3 days in stainless steel tanks at 12°C. Alcoholic fermentation also took place in stainless steel tanks over a span of 15 days at sub-24°C temperatures with daily pump-overs. Full malolactic fermentation occurred as well. The wine was aged in 2nd-use French oak barriques for 9 months, followed by 9 months in bottle after it was fined and filtered.

New Cepas Viejas, new technology, knowledge and passion for the wine is the presentation card of Dominio de Tares. Far away from foreigner varieties and focusing our efforts in the native Mencía and Godello varieties, we have brought out surprising wines because of their equilibrium and elegance; wines that cradled in noble woods fulfil our satisfaction. The tendering of an ancient vineyard, with vines rooted in the heart of the Bierzo; the manual harvest, cluster by cluster; and the time passing by the juice sleeping in French and American barrels, confer our wines with unique traits in the Spanish wine panorama. Our working philosophy, concentrating in the continuous effort to become better; and the commitment to our clients and consumers sums up the soul of this winery, founded in the year 2000. Founded only in 2000, Dominio de Tares was started by a group of young individuals from Bierzo, only one of whom, Amancio Fernandez, a highly acclaimed winemaker, was previously involved in wine. Despite the seeming lack of experience, they have become one of the region's leading producers. Their focus is on making wine from old vine Mencia grown high in the hills. Producing 500,000 bottles annually from 200 acres (75 acres of their own vineyards, and 125 acres leased), they are one of the largest in the region. Pedro Gonzalez replaced Fernandez as technical director (winemaker) two years ago. Read less

One can appreciate all the subtlety and elegance of the Mencia grape.Visually it is an attractive cherry red colour, with violet tones aroundthe rim. In the nose it offers strong fruity aromas of raspberries andcherries, as well as flowery hints of violet, which form a harmoniousensemble with the wood with hints of liquorice, chocolate, toffee,vanilla, and spices. In the mouth it is smooth, full bodied, and elegant,with the characteristic traits of the Mencia grape blended with thetoasted flavours of the oak casks noticeable in the retronasal.It has a long and smooth finish.We recommend serving at 18C in afine large round glass.

Tasting Notes:

This wine has a cherry red color with violet hues along the rim. The nose is powerful with intense fruity aromas, specifically red berries. Subtle flowery hints come through as well. These same characteristics are found on the palate as well, in addition to oak and spices.
