2010 Bodegas y Viñedos Ponce "Clos Lojen" Manchuela (Previously $16)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Clos Lojen is 100% Bobal fermented with whole clusters and aged in tank. Fruity aromas of blueberry, blackberry, and plum lead to a firm, tasty, well-balanced wine that can be enjoyed over the next 6 years.
Produced from Bobal, the local specialty of the Manchuela D.O., this wine is produced biodynamically from 33-55 year old vines. Delicious, juicy dark berry fruit shows all the hallmarks and deliciously gulpable qualities of a whole cluster, carbonically macerated wine, with the intensity and structure befitting a wine from this Mediterranean region. Please be sure to give this wine some air (maybe a quick 20-30 minute decant) for maximum enjoyment.
