Bovale Utiel-Requena Old Vines Bobal 2019

Nicely made and exuding character. Nose has bright, deep plummy fruit, along with nice, fragrant spice and a wisp of smoke. Mouthfilling, pure fruit on the palate, with a light touch, finish turns savory and shows lots of stony minerality. Nice acids and a bit of soft, chalky tannin comes out at the end. Terrific value. — 4 days ago

Bovale Bobal Rosé 2018

Really lovely fruit — peach, tangerine skin and cherries, and melon — with dried herbs on the finish. Really great with tikka masala.

The producer is using Tinto Fino not Tempranillo. Respectfully, requested Delectable change.

Ten years in bottle, time to check in on my first bottle of six.

On the nose, dark currants. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, baked black plum, raspberries & ripe strawberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, crushed limestone minerals, dry rock & stone, some black rich earth, soft leather, dry stems, steeped fruit tea, dark berry cola, sweet tarry notes with red & dark fresh florals.

The body was big and very full with a hour in the decanter it moves to more medium full with another hour in the decanter. The structure, length, tension and balance are just arriving to a sweet spot. Still plenty of life left in this 05. Another 10 years and perhaps more. The tannins are still pronounced but softened & round with a strong dusty presence. The fruits are; gorgeous, sexy, lush & ripe. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, black plum, creamy raspberries, raisins, ripe cherries & strawberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, dark chocolate, crushed limestone minerals, a fair amount of dry rock & stone, some black rich earth, soft leather, dry stems, hints of mint, dry herbs, steeped fruit tea, black licorice, dark berry cola, sweet tarry notes, used espresso roast with red & dark, purple, fresh florals. The acidity is near perfect. The long, ripe, lush, well balanced finish is excellent and lasts minutes. Beautiful wine with sex-appeal.

Sure David T but Tinto Fino is a colloquial name, used by locals, and they won’t deny it is Tempranillo, they just have their own (pet) name for it. But for Delectable and anyone else it is Tempranillo.

@Amy Huson I am simply respectful of a producers culture and preference of terminology. I respect producers above all, which is why I photo profile them and their properties in all my posts. While I understand it’s Tempranillo, it’s wasn’t their choice of terminology to use on their label. Hence, I respect their preference or choice to use Tino Fino. Also, not every wine drinker will know there are a number different grape names used in Spain and Portugal for Tempranillo, (Tinto Fino, Ojo de Liebre, Tinto de Toro, Tinto Madrid, and Cencibel. In Portugal, Tempranillo is often referred to as Tinta Roriz and Aragonez.) If a person saw my post and decided to look for the bottle in a shop, they would see Tino Fino on the label and not Tempranillo. I also wanted to avoid them thinking it might be a different bottling rather than the same. Thank you for the discussion & engagement.. Cheers!
