Gancedo Mencia 2012: "Initial aromas are oaky and a touch raw, but soon they settle on raspberry and plum. This is a chunky, fruit forward Mencia with dark berry, raspberry, spice, resiny oak and salty flavors. A full lively finish is muscular but also fresh and bright. It has only eight months in oak; drink now through 2015."

Gancedo Xestal Mencia 2008: "Dry, leathery and earthy up front, this mature Mencia is all about grip and complexity. In the mouth, it's tight and tannic. Flavors of dry cherry and berry are layered and earthy, while hard tannins and additional earth notes steer a long spicy finish. Drink through 2019."
