An extremely characteristic Mencia with all the complexity and
elegance this can entail. Impressive red cherry color with a veil
of violet shades on the rim. Powerful nose of red fruit (raspberry and cherry) and an assertive ripe plum along with floral notes, such as roses and violets, mixed with fallen leaves, tobacco and
sandalwood fragrances. Very well structured, impeccable balance
with a glyceric texture, full bodied, plush and elegant. Rich and

This dense wine from Bierzo is rich, chocolaty and reticent in its delivery of black-fruit aromas. The round, pure palate is rich and easy to like, while flavors of baked berry, earth and chocolate lead to a chewy, round finish that's friendly but structured and substantive.
Opaque ruby. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of candied red berries, cherry and cola, along with floral and Asian spice nuances. Sweet and penetrating, offering deep black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of candied licorice. Sappy and focused on the finish, which features notes of vanilla and cherry pit.
Dominio de Tares was formed in 2000 by an enthusiastic group of local investors, leading a quality resurgence following years of neglect in the area. Given Bierzo’s ideal, fresh/mineral terroir and the old Mencía vines, quality at the highest level was an immediate possibility. Amancio Fernández, Bierzo native and one of Spain’s brightest young enologists, brought intimate knowledge of local viticulture to bear, working from the start with the area’s most serious growers in order to obtain the very best fruit.
