2016 Finca Terrerazo
Toni Sarrion champions the variety Bobal, working on clonal selections and strict vineyard management for smaller and looser clusters. Finca Terrerazo is from two plots planted in 1945 and 1970 on dolamite limestone soil with chalky sand at 800 m.
The plots are vinified separately with indigenous yeasts and undergo malolactic in 225L French oak with batonnage. The final blend spends 21 months in French oak.

“Ripe dark berries, singed plum, candied licorice and woodsmoke on the deeply perfumed
nose. Made in a weighty, ripe style, offering bitter cherry, cassis and fruitcake flavors that are
energized by a late jolt of spiciness. Broad, chewy and smoky on the clinging finish, which
features mounting tannins and impressively persistent dark fruit liqueur character.” - Josh
