Finca Millara 2007 Mencía (Ribeira Sacra)

  1. $43

Floral and classy, with field herbs and pretty berry aromas. Fresh, juicy and forward in the mouth, with black fruit flavors led by dark plum. Finishes with complexity, tobacco and vanilla flavors. A stout, competent Mencía from a region worth paying attention to.

Peza do Rei 2009 White (Ribeira Sacra)

  1. $19

Clean, minerally and smooth, with nothing more than crispness and apple to the nose. The palate is easygoing, while the flavors of peach, pear and apple are boosted by minerality and good acidity. A highly likable, drinkable wine that shows that Galician quality extends beyond Albariño and Rías Baixas. Made from 70% Godello with Treixadura and Albariño. Drink now.

Adrás 2012 Mencía (Ribeira Sacra)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $19

Mild strawberry and raspberry aromas show a touch of lactic-smelling oak. Zesty and energetic on the palate, this pumps out red-fruit and cocoa flavors in front of a juicy, fresh, slightly tangy finish.

Ponte da Boga 2011 Blanco de Blancos White (Ribeira Sacra)

  1. $30

This crystalline Galician blend is composed of 95% Godello and Albariño, and it gets going with mellow apple, peach and other white-fruit aromas. The palate has a tangy, citrusy outlook with corresponding flavors of lime, orange and tangerine. Things turn pithy and more chunky on the finish.

Abadía da Cova 2008 Barrica Mencía (Ribeira Sacra)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $25

Smoky, rubbery and suggestive of bacon and toast on the nose. The palate is more crisp and snappy, with juicy flavors of red currant, cherry and spice. Acidity throughout yields a lemony finish, but it’s also chiseled and tight, which should please traditionalists who like their acidic bite.

Adrás 2012 Godello (Ribeira Sacra)

  1. $19

A citrusy nose revolves around lime and pineapple. This is citrusy to the point of pulpy on the palate, with nectarine and grapefruit flavors that eventually run out of steam on a finish that winds up pithy.

Peza do Rei 2009 Mencía (Ribeira Sacra)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $19

The riary aromas have a floral accent as well as a leathery side. It feels bouncy and composed, with a good mouthfeel and solid flavors of spiced raspberry and red plum. Oaky but vibrant on the finish.

Peza do Rei 2007 Barrica Mencía (Ribeira Sacra)

  1. $37

Starts out a bit soupy and thick, with earthy mulch and heavy berry aromas. Medium in body but with smacking tannins and snappy flavors of plum and raspberry. Quite "red" in terms of flavors, with fresh tomato notes. Finishes oaky, with a hint of chocolate.
