Product Description

"'Las Lamas' is from 0.54 hectares of south-facing slope on the hill named Las Lamas in Corullon, comprised of one each of 60, 90 and 100 year old patches of vines. Oak etc as for Moncerbal; unfiltered, total production 5 barrels. Equal parts carne and carnal, there’s wildness all about this wine.

Darker and earthier than Moncerbal, wild roses and a lash of mountain herbs, electrically mineral. Very well fit to the mouth without being 4-square and not overly drying either, lovely juice covering granular tannins in a wine of profoundly earthy overall cast." Importer's Note

"They hit the nail on the head with the harvest date of the 2016 Las Lamas, and the wine shows incredible precision, elegance and symmetry this year. I've often discussed with Ricardo Pérez Palacios how sensitive Mencía is with the harvest date and how the grape has a very short picking window, to the point that, in 2016, you feel one day difference. They have been fine-tuning this wine in the last few years, and the result is evident. 3,655 bottles and some larger bottles were filled in June 2018. " -

"Brilliant violet color. A hugely perfumed and complex bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, candied flowers, exotic spice, licorice and smoky minerals. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering densely packed black raspberry, cherry liqueur, spicecake and lavender flavors that show outstanding delineation and back-end power. The mineral and floral notes drive an extremely long, energetic finish that leaves an alluring dark berry preserve note behind." - 95 Points Josh Raynolds Vinous Media


"I love the fragrant cherry, dry earth and wild herb nose. Quite sleek, but impressive concentration, fine-grained tannins and lively acidity that are already beautifully married on the long filigree finish. Barrel sample." 94-95 Points James Suckling
