  • El Pecado 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Cult wine from Spain. 100% Mencia which produces a light, bright red fruit with floral notes. Compares favorably with the best wines of Priorat. The 2005 would benefit from more time in the bottle before drinking. Read More

  • Ventura D Vina Do Burato Ribeira Sacra Red 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Opening with spicy , sappy red berry fruits and a flourish of sweet herbal tones this if fresh and bright smelling. Gentle though grippy tannins and juicy acids combine for an easy but not soft mouthfeel that highlights the minerally, almost salty red fruits of this crisp, crunchy,fresh wine. Guzzle it up! 91pts Read More

  • Adega Mondelo Ribeira Sacra Porvide Men Ia 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Dark reddish color. Nose shows raspberry, black pepper, wet earth, and gingerbread. Medium acid and firm tannins fill the mouth. In the mouth dark earth, pepper and rich fruit all mingle. Really a nice example of the power this grape has. 3/5 [NR] Read More

  • Adega Mondelo Ribeira Sacra Porvide Blanco 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Light golden in color. The nose is candy like with creamy fruit and daisey like floral notes. Overall very dry with a medium acidity that keeps it fresh. Primary flavors are of golden apple with some floral hints thrown in. Tasty though not really enough body to make it interesting. 2.5/5 [NR] Read More
