Raul Pérez Mencía Bierzo Ultreia Valtuille 2008

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

The 2008 Ultreia De Valtuille received the same elevage as its less expensive sibling. To say that has more of everything is a gross understatement. The complex aromatics leap from the glass; on the palate the wine is dense, rich, and velvety, and it gives true meaning to the expression "iron fist in a velvet glove." It is an extraordinary effort that should drink well for 10-15 years, probably longer.

The 2005 Ultreia De Valtuille is also 100% Mencia from Bierzo. Of the 315 cases produced, a mere 15 will make it to the USA. Opaque purple-colored, it offers greater complexity aromatically and on the palate. It has an exotic, mineral-dominated nose with lots of floral elements, blueberry, black cherry, and black raspberry. Layered, opulent, yet elegant, this lengthy wine has 6-8 years of aging potential and will provide much pleasure through 2025.

This polished red delivers dark, alluring flavors of black cherry, spiced plum, espresso and mineral. Offers light, firm tannins and well-integrated acidity, with a savory character that should match well with food. Drink now through 2016.
