Avancia Cuvee de O Mencia 2014
$ 14.99

Another excellent value is the 2014 Cuvee de O Mencia. This is aged in French oak on its lees for six months and then bottled early to preserve its freshness. Production is tiny, about four-fifths of a ton of fruit per acre. It is deep ruby/purple with plenty of forest floor, spring flowers, mulberry, licorice and raspberry are somewhat reminiscent of a ripe vintage for Cabernet Franc in the Loire Valley. This elegant, medium-bodied, beautifully pure wine should drink well for 4-5 years, possibly a lot longer.

Note: All purchases of alcoholic beverages must be made by persons over the age of 21.
