Bobal de San Juan Bobal Old Vines 2012, Spain 

My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $13. 
Ruby in color with a wide purplish rim and light intensity.

Strong nose of blackberries, plums, cherries, spices, oak, licorice, black pepper and earth.

Light to medium bodied, with medium acidity and a soft mouthfeel.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, currants, wood, light vanilla, licorice, spices, tar, earth, pencil lead, peppercorn and green vegetables.

Medium finish with soft tannins and spices.

This is a nice, easy drinking Spanish red for everyday. Feels like a new world red. Good wine with food and by itself, at a good price.

Soft and not intruding. Good for parties and good right out of the bottle. Not my usual style, but I enjoyed it.

100% Bobal grapes from 60 years old bush vines. Grapes are grown on chalky clay soils at 2000 feet elevation.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
