2001 Luna Beberide Tierras De Luna
"Even though this takes a generic appellation, Bierzo's spirit is evident in this blend of 15 percent mencia plus three grapes unauthorized in the Bierzo DO- cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo and merlot. Tense and full of dark cherry and black pepper flavors, it feels elegant and cool, the mineral tones as fresh as an Atlantic breeze."
"Dark red. Smoky, cedary red and dark fruit aromas are reminiscent of Bordeaux. Sweet, chewy and deep, with strong blackcurrant and cherry flavors and a mineral nuance. Long, silky and sweet on the finish, with firm tannins, mounting dark berry flavors and a note of graphite. Very poised wine." -90 Points, Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar
