Vox Populi, Bobal, Utiel-Requena, Spain, 2013
Drinking Window: 2016 - 2018
Utiel-Requena, west of Valencia, is arid and hot. This gives the Bobal grapes muscle and intensity. Redcurrant and blackberry aromas show immediately that this is not a subtle wine. Ripe, juicy black blue and red fruits jostle for position in the mouth and provide a constant wave of sensations. A soft texture belies the underlying structure. This would be fantastic with some grilled meat.
