Opinión de los críticos
The 2014 Pizarra is named after the slate soils where the Mencía grapes are grown, and it's one of the more classical wines in the portfolio. It has a more developed nose (it's also a little older than the rest) that combines varietal aromas with notes of wild herbs, spices and smoke, something earthy and more-complex aromas of dried leaves and forest floor. The palate is medium-bodied and very tasty, with clean and intense flavors, fine tannins and a savory finish. It's very approachable, but it should continue its life in bottle for a few more years.
With fragrant, violet-like florals and brambly blue and purple fruits, this wine has an air of freshness and finesse. The palate is really plush and supple and bathed in smoky dark cherry fruit flavors. Impressive. Drink now.
