The grapes for the 2008 Avanthia Mencia are sourced from 70- and 85-year-old vineyards. The wine is barrel-fermented and then aged for 14 months in new French oak. Purple-colored, it offers up a compelling bouquet of underbrush, smoke, spice box, mulberry, plum, and blueberry that jumps from the glass. This leads to an elegantly styled wine with outstanding depth, succulent flavors, vibrant acidity, and incipient complexity.
Vivid ruby. Intense, oak-spiced aromas of black raspberry, cherry cola, violet and minerals, with complicating notes of cured tobacco and licorice. This very exotic wine offers sweet red and dark berry flavors mingled with Asian spice, vanilla and candied flowers. Shows no rough edges and finishes with excellent clarity and zesty persistence.
