Conde de Hervías Mencos Reserva 2006

Mencos Crianza

Mencos comes from a beautiful parcel of vines the south side of the Ebro River in the village of Torremontalvo. This vineyard, with chalky clay over gravel, is well suited to the tempranillo grape.

Vinification The wine is fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and aged 16 months in old French and American oak barrels that were previously used for Conde de Hervías.

Tasting Notes Very fragrant spices mingling with violets and sandlewood. The palate is luxurious and rich with even tannins present beneath. A wine to watch evolve over an extended period.
