Vox Populi, Bobal, Utiel-Requena, Spain 2011

Rating: 16.75/20pts

Made  from the third most planted grape variety in Spain, this tannic, earthy  red hails from a hot and arid region in the east of the country.  Blackberry and cassis aromas combine with spice on the nose, while the  palate is compact, muscular and tannic, marking it out as something that  needs both aeration and food.
