Atance Bobal Valencia 2017
90+ Points! The single-vineyard red 2017 ATANCE is pure organically farmed Bobal from the Casa Segura at 800 meters in altitude. It fermented in 10,000-liter stainless steel tanks with destemmed grapes and indigenous yeasts followed by malolactic fermentation and an élevage of four to six months in 8,000-liter oak vats. There is quite a jump in quality from La Traca here; this is more serious and it has a finer palate with subtle chalky minerality. In fact, I think it transcends the vintage. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com
Opaque ruby. Ripe red and blue fruit aromas and flavors, along with a cracked pepper nuance and a hint of violet. Fleshy and broad in the mouth, showing good depth and a hint of warmth on the back half. The peppery note repeats on the finish, which clings with youthfully chewy tannic grip. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
