Dominio de Tares Mencia Baltos Red 2008
The 100% Mencía grapes for this wine come from gobelet-pruned, 40-year-old vines from hillside and river bench vineyards with clay and calcareous soils and located in three different areas—Cabanelas, Valtuille and Almázcara. After green pruning and leaf removal, the grapes are handpicked in small, 15kg crates with manual selection on the sorting table. Following an 18-day alcoholic fermentation at 28ºC, the wine undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation. All of the wine is aged for four to seven months in lightly toasted French and American barriques. The wine is naturally clarified but never filtered.
External Reviews for Dominio de Tares Mencia Baltos Red
The 2008 Baltos made from 100% Mencia and aged for 6 months in seasoned French and American barriques. It offers up an earthy minerality along with aromas of cherry cola and spicy black fruits. Dense, rich, and layered on the palate, this juicy, pleasure-bent effort has enough stuffing to evolve for 1–2 years but can be approached now. It is an outstanding value.
Herbal and smoky notes mingle in this light, firm red, framing a modest core of cherry and tobacco. Fresh acidity keeps it all lively, despite slightly grippy tannins. Drink now through 2013.
Vivid ruby. Red berries and cherry pit on the nose, with complicating notes of smoky herbs and cracked pepper. Nicely focused dark fruit flavors are given spine by juicy acidity and show a touch of bitterness on the back. Gentle tannins add shape to the spicy dark fruit finish. This is drinking well now.
Food Pairings for Dominio de Tares Mencia Baltos Red
This is a vibrant example of all that is fascinating about the Mencía grape: intensely bright fruits of blueberries and raspberries accompanied by an herbal and floral note, like rosemary and rosehips. American oak dustiness adds to the fun and character of the wine. Such a wine is indispensible at the table; grilled fish, vegetarian dishes, and lighter meats are perfect for the wine’s medium weight and succulent personality.
90000 bottles produced.
Notes: 6 months of aging in both French and American Oak
