Pasion de Bobal 2015

Utiel-Requena, Valencia and Murcia, SpainCrimson cherry, red currant, twine smoke fill the round and chewy palate of this youthful red from DO Utiel-Requena, in Spain's southeast. This is 100 percent bobal, native to the region and making up 90 percent of all plantings. The grape's thick skins suit the sunbaked region, and the rusticity of this wine, though its wood-streaked tannins and ripe, dried fruits, mirror the environment. There's a lick of sweetness on the finish. Pour this rustic, fuller red with equally rustic foods: meat pie, sausages, tripe.Tasted: 10 January 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 17.99 private wine shops AB18.49 0.00 private wine shops NFL 22.68 NLLC Producer: Bodega Sierra NorteDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
