Mustiguillo Winery Bobal Mestizaje

 

I’m having a Bobal moment!

For those of you who love red wine, you may want to try this intensely structured dark jewel with plenty of bold tannins and pleasing acidy. The Bobal grape is a proud native of Valencia, Spain, where 90% of these vines are grown in the Utiel-Requena province.

Early this year, I attended a wine event hosted by Utiel-Requena (@DOUtielRequena, #URBobal), where I first tasted all sorts of interesting selections of Bobal based wines. Therefore, still having wonderful thoughts of Bobal dancing in my mind, I ran across the Mustiguillo Winery Bobal Mestizaje (pictured above) at Costco for bargain $10.49. Those spicy dark fruits on the nose and palate are a complete black-cherry bomb! Initially, my food-pairing thoughts would have been pasta dishes. But, now I’m visualizing a Bobal tasting party with authentic Valencia-style paella on the menu….

P.S. Even better news—the Bobal grape possesses high concentrations of resveratrol, elements that support anti-aging and promote a healthy heart! Cheers to a younger and healthier me, and drinking more Bobal…
