Last night was family night, and we sat down to a delicious supper of pan-seared marmalade duck leg, cold beet salad, and potatoes roasted with tarragon. It was the perfect accompaniment… Pasión de Bobal.

Bobal is an indigenous great variety from the community of Valencia in Spain. The Pasión vines are actually 60 years old.. And you can taste the maturity and complexity in the glass. If you’ve never heard of this one before, you should look it up. With an intense dark ruby color, it’s stunning in the glass.

On the nose, it has deep aromas of sleep, a bright red fruits, dried cranberries, a slight game Aroma, licorice, and roasted wood with a liberal sprinkling of dried herbs. It’s amazingly intense and complex.

In the mouth, it has a medium plus body with pronounce soft tenants, and medium plus acid. It has delicious flavors of more red fruits, smoke, licorice, vanilla, and that Steely undertone. It has wonderful structure and is absolutely enjoyable. What a wonderful accompaniment it made two…!

This wine is a 9/10! And you should really check it out.

Plus, it makes the most delicious present for your true love… Look at the label!
