El Castro de Valtuille Joven 2007. 90 Parker.

The 2007 El Castro de Valtuille Joven is 100% Mencia from the DO of Bierzo.

Dark ruby-colored, it reveals an enticing perfume of baking spices, eucalyptus/pine notes, black cherry, and black raspberry. This leads to a smooth-textured, sweet, forward wine with no hard edges. Drink this lengthy effort over the next several years. It is a terrific introduction to the Mencia grape and the Bierzo region.
