Mencía thrives on slate, but when it’s grown on clay it can tend toward low-acid wines. That’s the case in certain areas of Bierzo, especially around Villafranca, the capital of the D.O. This wine, from 30- to 40-year-old vines, seems to be an exception. With rich flavors of ripe red fruit, earth and spice, this is a complex and juicy Bierzo. Yes, its texture is soft and creamy, but it runs deep into meaty flavors and mineral tannins, a wine that needs oxtail today or five years in bottle.
