2018 Utiel-Requena, Spain
Bobal has made a phenomenal comeback in the past few years and is now the 3rd most popuar grape in Spain (after Airen and Tempranillo). It's been around since the 15th centrury and that's why this delicious example from Bodegas Murviedro based near Valencia is typical, being cepas viejas (old vine).
Lots to enjoy at every level with this beauty... forest fruit aromas together with notes of toffee and vanilla. The palate is complex and structured, with more blackberry and plum characters, smooth tannins, a touch of mocha and a long finish.
Drink with roast lamb or beef dishes.
