This is a beautiful representation of the Bobal grape, an up-and-coming ancient red variety in SE Spain. Blackberry and raspberry flavors are complemented by hints of wet earth from amphora aging.
This wine smells of fresh blackberry, wet earth, candied raspberry with hints of sweet spices like clove and vanilla. One sip will transport you to a dusty road in rural Spain that is lined with wild blackberry and raspberry bushes.
While this wine has punchy tannins, it is clear that the winemaker, Daniel, has managed to heroically tame the rustic structure of the Bobal grape and balance it with plenty of spunky fruit. The 5 months in amphora has rounded the tannins, integrated the flavors and created a wine that is a clear representation of the land, history and culture that it comes from.
