The Wine Advocate (August 2013):

"At the end of the day, if we really have to recommend a wine of this collection, which I would buy for my cellar, will be the petals Bierzo 2016. It is 95% Mencia mixed in the field with 3% of white grapes and the rest Alicante Bouschet and other red wines, fermented after stripping of wood and stainless steel open vats and over ten months in French oak barrels, of which 20% are new. the 80% of the grapes are grown on the blackboard in the vineyards of Corullon, with different altitudes and orientations, and the remaining 20% ​​come from the clay soils of the valley. all this adds to the complexity of the wine. the wine is very aromatic and floral (violet), almost intoxicating, with clear notes of blueberries and licorice. The oak is well integrated, almost imperceptible, except for a touch of spice and a lactic touch denoting a very young wine. it has a medium bodied with a silky texture thick, is very tasty, with some sab pray acidic strawberries. This is one of my go to restaurant listings wines, offering very good value and is widely available in Spain (and elsewhere, I hope!) As 320. 000 bottles were produced. This could very well be the best Petals produced to date. Drink now through 2019 ".

Pétalos del Bierzo Magnum 2016

Deep ruby. Smoky cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by suave floral and dark chocolate nuances. Blackberry and bitter cherry flavors become sweeter with air, picking up a peppery note that adds vibrancy. Closes spicy and long, with sneaky tannins and an echo of bitter chocolate.

Opened it at a couples' night out.
Bright cherry colour, high layer. Nice cherry smell. Perfect amount of acidity.
This Bierzo is a good time killer while waiting for the food.
