Flavium Premium Bierzo Mencia Vinos De Arganza 2008 750ml

 Flavium Premium Bierzo Mencia Vinos De Arganza

90 Points Wine Advocate: The 2008 Flavium Premium Mencia spent 20 months in French and American oak. Opulent, rich, and lengthy, it has the balance to drink well for 6-8 years but at the asking price most consumers will want to grab some immediate gratification.

So far, the 'Red Wine Value of the Year' award has to go to the just-arrived Flavium “Premium” Bierzo 2008. It’s a big, rich, and wide-open Spanish red that earned a 90 point rating from Wine Advocate. From one of Spain’s most exciting re-emerging regions, Bierzo, it was supposed to retail for about $16 – already great value from a region where $25-$50 is more common. But we bought early and big, so you can enjoy this robust, oak-aged, beauty from just $9.97!

“Every once in a while an unfamiliar wine region rises and demands attention. Most recently, I’ve been hearing the song of the red wines of Bierzo. Bierzo? Absolutely. It’s a small, ancient region in the northwestern corner of Castilla y Leon, almost on the eastern border of Galicia, which is due north of Portugal on the Atlantic coast. Most wine drinkers, I suspect, have never heard of Bierzo, but the word is getting around. And if you get the opportunity to taste a good bottle, with haunting, exotic wildflower, licorice and fruit flavors, you can’t help but remember it.” - Eric Asimov, The New York Times

I took a chance and ordered this untested red from Spain and I served it to 30 people at a dinner party. I fretted over it for several days prior. I was delighted by the quality and the wonderful responses I received. Three guests even wanted to take the left over wine home.
I am ready to reorder as soon as it becomes available.

This wine is very light considering it was aged in oak. I enjoyed the wine as I do all Spanish wines. I was not disappointed & recommend it is a nice summer evening wine or an every day wine. The price is sure worth it.

This wine was much more light bodied than I expected. It reminded me more of many of the "young" wines from Italy.

One of the characteristics of old world reds that I enjoy is "terroir", the taste of the soil. Does this wine have terroir?

Yes, this absolutely does. Worth a try.
