Ribera de Ulver Crianza

DO Bierzo, Spain (100% Mencia) 750 ml Best Value Mencias by the New York Times September 2013 RECENT REVIEWS Dark plum and berry aromas hit with oomph and are accented by toasty, minerally notes. This Mencía is balanced and nicely textured, with blackberry, prune and licorice flavors. Some bitterness comes up on the finish, but mostly this ends like it starts, with jammy richness and dark-fruit notes. — 87 POINTS, M.S., Wine Enthusiast, 10/2013  .
