Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Blanco is a blend of 85% Viura, 10% Garnacha Blanca and 5% Malvasía Riojana that fermented in stainless steel vats and one 700-liter Nomblot egg-shaped concrete vat. The wine finished fermenting in new 350- and 500-liter French oak barriques with 8% acacia wood barrels. It matured in those casks for some six to seven months with bâtonnage twice per week. It didn't go through malolactic fermentation.There are notes of fennel and yeasts, a bit leesy with a core of white fruit, not too aromatic or showy and a bit restrained. The palate feels very balanced with good freshness, clean and also a little restrained. Itfeels like an improvement over previous years. The fennel and aniseed notes grow with time in the glass. 10,428 bottles were filled in July 2017.

A wine list from Flask published in the early 1970s
Driving down Ventura Blvd in Studio City in the 1960’s has something in common with today, Flask Fine Wine & Whisky- Flask first opened its doors to the public in 1962. Decades later and it still remains a respected fixture in the Los Angeles community.
We work directly with the wineries, distilleries and breweries to maintain a personal relationship with the creators of some of our favorite products.
