Product Description

Lacima is the Estate's 100% ode to Mencia and hails from vines aged between 50 and 100 years of age, planted on fragmented slate. The yields were a measly 400-800 grams per vine and the result is an intensely fragrant, densely-packed and complex wine, full of gorgeous florals, raspberry fruit and terroir-derived individuality. Tanzer's note on the 2006 paints a pretty vivid picture of Lacima's personality: "...A real mineral bath on the palate, offering penetrating dark berry flavors and a sexy floral pastille quality, with slow-mounting smokiness and wonderful clarity. Very pure and precise wine with excellent finishing vivacity and lingering sweetness." The winemaking is similar to the Lalama except that Lacima is fermented in 500lt, open top fermenters and matured for 20 months in 500lt French oak puncheons.

"(a blend of 85% mencia and 15% brancellao): Vivid red. More deeply pitched than the Lalama, offering fresh cherry and black raspberry scents with hints of smoky minerals, violet and licorice. Zesty mineral and peppery spice notes add bite to sweet dark fruit flavors, which pick up a blood orange nuance with air. Closes sappy, spicy and long, leaving a sexy floral note behind."
93 Points, Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Sept/Oct 13
