2011 Vitivinos Azua Bobal Roble

The nose on this Spanish red is wonderful, displaying some deep ripe blackberry notes with some toasted oak. The grape is called Bobal, something we've never tried before!

We get the same blackberry flavor along with a little tobacco on the back end. The tannins are just right—smooth, but with a firm grip. This red is medium to full in body, with a long lasting finish. It's a touch alcohol-forward, even after a couple days of being opened. That doesn't stop us from enjoying it, though. Solid effort by Vitivinos on this wine; it gets our thumbs up!
