Manuel Manzaneque Mil Cepas Bobal Vino de Parcela Paraje la Palomera DO Valencia 2016
Opaque, inky purple color.
Aromas of blackberries, black licorice, cassis, spices (fenugreek seed and cloves). Very fine oak notes of toasted chocolate/fruity city-roast coffee influences the nose and palate.
Flavors echo the nose with elegant balance, firm yet very finely textured tannins and fresh acid. Shows a bit of alcoholic heat. Yet this just came off a container this week. If the alcohol integrates with time this will warrant a higher score.
Best Bobal you've ever tasted? Probably.

It is fall and my MIL is here and we all know that means Champagne time. This is a lovely crisp blanc de blanc. Very enjoyable — a month ago
