Nice deep red color with a nose that makes me think a bit of Rioja and a bit of Burgundy. Todonia like age on the nose with the subtle spice of Rioja, old wood and light cherry spice in the background. Pretty and welcoming with a touch of wood. In the mouth the wine is light with strong but fine tannins. I really feel like this is a different Bobal from the others I have tasted, this one having a more refined profile, though I'm intrigued by the strong tannins. Great cherry notes, and that lightly sour wood quality you find in older wines, all framed by light gentle spice. I will complain that med-long finish shows a bit too much of the oak, but I do think that given a year or three in bottle this might work itself out.

Medium dark crimson in color with a light ruby rim. My first impression is that of surprise, in that if I had tasted this blind, I think I would have shot for an old school Rioja. Weird, yet kinda cool. It's got that elegant fresh mature cherry aroma with a touch of dark spice, leather and old cellar hidden in the background. Not subtle, yet not overwhelming, just pleasant and innocent. In the mouth, the acidity is expansive, spiking right at the tip of my tongue, than washing across my entire palate leaving small gentle sparks followed by a thin layer of fine tannins. Although a little heavy of the oak, it doesn't completely mask the black pepper and cherry finish. Lay this down for a few years and see if the oak doesn't eventually chill out allowing the fruit to pipe up a bit.

lovely dark purple intense yet delightfully balanced considering how many grapes are in this blend, the native spanish grape bobal adds an earthyness to the fruit of the others such as the merlot and garancha. High tannins but not so much as to make it intolerable! I wonder if it would keep for a few years yet...I really liked itand the boyfriend mentioned it tasted like candied pepper...

Inky purple. Smoky dark berries and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of dark chocolate and black tea. Serious, brooding dark fruit flavors are braced by dusty minerals and framed by chewy tannins. I admire this wineandrsquo;s power and depth but itandrsquo;ll need a hunk of fatty red meat to tame it. Fans of densely packed, masculine wines may rate it higher.

Given the proficiency (or lack thereof) of Americans with foreign languages, I can't imagine how the name of this wine gets butchered. In any event, the 2003 Mestizaje is a fine effort made primarily from the indigenous Bobal grape, with Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Garnacha included in the blend. It spent one year in old French oak, and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Herbaceous, earthy, funky characteristics jump from the glass of this kinky wine. While it is not for everyone, it offers opaque ruby/purple color, medium body and loads of fruit, but it is unquestionably "avant garde" in its aromas and flavors. I found its weirdness to be a turn-on. It should age well 3-4 years.

The 2007 Mestizaje is a blend of 70% Bobal, with the balance Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Cabernet Sauvignon. It was barrel-fermented and raised in oak for 6 months prior to bottling without fining or filtration. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up an alluring perfume of cedar, tobacco, black raspberry, black cherry, and violets. This is followed by a smooth-textured, layered, savory wine with lots of spice, chocolate-covered cherry and black fruit flavors. It will develop for another 2andndash;3 years but can be enjoyed now.

The 2005 Mestizaje is composed of 70% Bobal with the balance equal parts Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit comes from vines planted on chalk and limestone at high altitude in the Terrerazo zone of Utiel-Requena. Malolactic fermentation occurred in used French oak where the wine remained for an additional 6 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Purple in color, the wine offers aromas of pain grille, damp earth, vanilla, black cherry, and black currant. Thick and chewy on the palate, the wine has excellent depth and concentration leading to a tannic finish. If the tannins become better integrated over the next 2-3 years, my score will appear conservative.

Impress your friends at parties once you've learned how to properly pronounce this wine! Astonish them with your wine savvy once they've tasted it! Comprised primarily of Bobal (an indigenous grape of Spain) and a blend of Bordeaux and Rhône varietals, it somehow ends up tasting like a $50 Pauillac. Old World tannins create the framework for complex notes of black cherries, saddle leather, cigar box and graphite. The little bit of funky earth on the nose is no doubt attributable to the Grenache, and adds yet another dimension to this remarkable wine.
