Deeply ruby. Intense youthful ripe black plum, violet, licorice, rosemary and balsamico nose. On palate, ripe blackcurrant, licorice and spicy. High but pleasant acidity and strong tannins that are ripe. Beautiful finish. Pair with steak, duck or with a bitter dark chocolate.
Since its inception in 2000, Dominio de la Vega has focused on the extraordinary potential of Bobal—and particularly when cultivated in older vineyards. Originally planted during the years between 1940-1950, the vineyard Paraje Tornel encompasses little more than five acres—with vines at least 50 years old and a harvest by hand in the second half of September. The resultant vine is as distinguished as its heritage that is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, plus at least another 12 months in the bottle.
