From the Utiel-Requena region of northwest Spain and made from 100% Bobal grapes.  This is an excellent value red.  Ruby in color.  The nose is tight at first but opens with air to show dust and cherries.  On the palate, this has light tannins.  Nice cherry fruit.  Some black cherry fruit and a bit of earthiness.  Slight depth.  OK acidity.  This should certainly last another five years and it may get better.  It works better with food.
