"100% Mencia grape displays mild aromas of black licorice and black pepper. It is medium bodied with plum and blueberry flavors. It is full bodied with some aggressive grip, but it softens as the wine is poured."

Warm growing season, high quality bright fruit with structured tannins.
The 2009 Avante is 100% Mencia sourced from multiple vineyards with an average age of 43 years. The wine was aged in both stainless steel (30%) and French oak (70%) for 5 months. It offers up notes of earthy minerals, a hint of balsamic, black cherries, and violets leading to a nicely proportioned, sweetly fruited, savory red with excellent volume and length. It is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 4-5 years.
