Las Lamas 2015
Las Lamas se presenta como un tinto denso y vivo, carnal y opulento. De espíritu orgánico y estimulante, sus uvas proceden de tres pequeñas parcelas, una de ellas de 100 años de antiguedad. La máxima expresión de la Mencía predispuesta para una lenta evolución.

Opinión de los críticos
Curiously enough, the 2015 Las Lamas felt more focused and defined than the 2014, despite having been a warmer year. It sometimes seems like the warmer, southern exposure of the vineyard really shines in warmer years, when in principle, it should be the other way around. I even found notes of blood orange here, which I tend to associate with cooler vintages and northern exposures. But in any case, this 2015 is truly exceptional. It took some time to open up in the glass, so if you pull the cork anytime soon, decant it in advance, but I'm sure the best for this 2015 is yet to come. 3,649 bottles and some other formats were filled in March 2017. - Luis Gutiérrez.
This is a super red with stone, terracotta and dark berry character. Medium to full body, seamless tannins. Very long and beautiful. Powdery mouthfeel. Lovely acidity. The white pepper and quartz character really comes through. Drink now. But made for ageing.
With 85% Mencía, 11% white grapes (varieties may include Palomino, Pan y carne, Godello, Valenciano) and 4% other red grapes, from parcels between 50 and 120 years old Álvaro Palacios Las Lamas 2015 is a brilliant purple colour with blue tinges. Ringingly clean and pure, with damson fruit. The palate is refined, and structured, with a fine grip and a very long finish
