Tasting notes on the wine:
"Bobal loves to take in the cool Mediterranean Sea air and retain a lovely lift and spring in its step amid the powerful flavors of black cherry, blueberry, and crunchy black plum. This is a wonderful wine for those looking for weight and richness without a cloying quality of saccharine fruit and oak. It’s balanced but deeply colored at the same time and can pair with any food that kisses the fire: veggies, poultry, fish, or meats.” — June Rodil
About the winemaker:
"One of the torchbearers of Bobal is Vera de Estenas, possibly the most traditional producer in Utiel-Requena, with some of the oldest Bobal holdings in Spain. Founded in 1945 by Francisco Martinez Bermell, Vera de Estenas has been crafting wines from their 47 hectares of estate fruit since their inception." — Jose Pastor Selections
