The 2008 Altos de Losada, is produced exclusively from Mencia grapes from their own vineyards. As the grapes are intermixed in the old vineyards, they only pick the Mencia grapes from each plot, where the soils are pure clay. It has a reticent nose, and needs time in the glass or in the decanter to start opening up. It shows some incipient complexity in the nose, with straw and hay notes, forest floor and some plums, all of it framed and spiced up by the aging in wood. Mineral and powerful, it gravitates towards a dry finish. Give it a little bit more time. Drink 2014-2019.
