'Petalos' is D.J.P.'s regional introduction wine to the Mencias of Bierzo. Largely from Corullon fruit (including declassified material from the single vineyard sites), but includes some material from sites managed, rather than owned by Alvaro and Ricardo. Absolutely gorgeous, plush, elegant and floral - trademark roses and pepper tree perfume, bright and earthy at once, red fruits hybridised with the juice of rose petals, peppercorn and roast meat juice. It's very savoury, elegant, satiny but dry, long and supple with sour cherries and dried sage.

Wine SpectatorThis fresh red shows black cherry and red plum flavors that mingle with savory notes of licorice, charred herb and espresso. Firm, tangy acidity is more prominent than the light tannins. The finish shows a refreshing bitterness. Drink now through 2021. 25,000 cases made.
