Light, hazy yellow. Pungent aromas of pear skin, mango and lime pith, plus a suave floral overtone. Penetrating, sharply focused citrus and orchard fruit flavors gain depth and spiciness with air and pick up a hint of honey. Dry, penetrating and stony on the persistent finish, which leaves sexy floral and key lime notes behind.

The 2012 Finca Terrerazo is a selection of old Bobal from low-yielding vineyards planted between 1970 and 1975 on sand and chalk soils. It was fermented in French oak vats with indigenous yeasts after a severe selection. The different plots aged separately in French barriques until after malolactic then they were blended and matured to complete around 18 months in barrel. In this warm vintage the wine is ripe with aromas of blackberries, plenty of balsamic notes (aromatic herbs) and some hints of cigar ash and peat. The palate is medium to full-bodied with abundant tannins and some flavors of wood toward the finish that leave it ending slightly bitter. I think this would benefit from some more time in bottle. 34,400 bottles were produced.
