The 2014 of Flavium is a lovely, supple, full-bodied Spanish red wine blend of native grapes. Aromas of ripe blackberry, cassis and smoke. The vines are more than 50 years old. The wine was aged in oak for 14 months. Pair with grilled lamb.

Mencía food pairings: grilled meats, hard cheese, pork roast.

Reviews and Ratings

From Vinos de Arganza, Flavium Selección 2014 is medium-full bodied Mencía red wine from the Bierzo wine region and aged in American oak barrels for six months. Deep ruby in the glass, the wine is ripe dark berries, savoury spice and herb flavours on the palate. Pair with mature cheeses and Ibérico ham. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
