Spain Easy Paella featuring RiceSelect™ Arborio Rice
RiceSelect™ Arborio Rice has an exceptional ability to absorb flavors, which makes it the perfect choice for tasty paella and Spanish Red Wines
A very nice introduction to the 100% Mencia group. This one will make you want to try a few more of this varietal.
Had this at La Cave du Vin in Cleveland Heights - amazing wine! Aromas that would make you think twice about it - barn yard and earth. Deliciously earthy and fruity on the palate.
A complex wine with noticeable terroir made from the Mencia grape in Bierzo. A great front end - with lead pencil and leather, but loses a bit in the mid-palate. 60 year-old vines grown at almost 3000 feet above sea level delivered only about one cluster per plant! A good effort but at $30 probably not great value.
External Reviews for Dominio De Tares Mencía Bierzo
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.
Shows a deep red claret colour with violet hue towards the rim.Powerful nose with ripe red fruit, and hint of violets and minerals.Fresh, elegant and clean, delicious with plenty of varietal flavours onthe palate.Sweet tannins and refreshing but integrated acidity.

(Dominio de Tares 'Bembibre' 2002) 'Lush on the nose, with wild game, smoke, and blackberry filling every void. Almost Syrah-like in its weight, more so than the other Mencia wines that are making a statement. Which only means that it's chewy, chocolaty, and creamy... 91 points'---Michael Schachner, The Wine Enthusiast, June 2005(Dominio de Tares 'Bembibre' 2002) 'From select vineyard plots of almost 100-year-old vines, the licorice, mineral intensity of this red inspires oohs and aahs with every sip.'---Leslie Sbrocco, 'Spain Reigns,' The San Francisco Chronicle, February 10, 2005(Dominio de Tares Bembibre Bierzo 2002) 'Deep ruby-red. Black raspberry, black cherry, mint, herbs and roasted oak on the nose. Sweet, dense and a bit youthfully reduced, with round, spicy flavors of blackberry, coffee, minerals and herbs. At once serious and pretty. Finishes persistent and ripely tannic, with cool notes of menthol and herbs. A very successful wine for this cool vintage. 89 Points'---Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, September/October 2004(Dominio de Tares, Bembibre 2002) - 'Rich and powerful, yet perfectly balanced and focused. Black fruit flavors are supported by toast and coffee notes from oak; muscular tannins give structure without obtrusiveness. Though elegant, it has enough power to reward cellaring. 93 Points' --- Thomas Matthews, The Wine Spectator Weekly, September 23, 2004

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.
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.
