Old vine Bobal๐Ÿ˜ very Southern Rhone Valley-esque. Got that jelly jar, stewed fruit nose, bricky earth dark fruit on the palate. A little Zin-Essie as well with the lip smacking jam residual left over on my lips. Would love to see how this interacts with some sticky icky BBQ.๐Ÿ˜‹

This shows more overt oak than the 2012. Also more depth, complexity and length. Solid.

Deep purple. Toasty, spicy and brambley. Should be great with spicy foods.

My introduction to Bobal. Good balance of acid and tannins. Great with paella.
