Bodegas y Vinedos Ponce Clos Lojen 2009


SKU 07562


This wine presents deep red color; it's almost black in your glass. Why? It's due to the red-skinned, red-fleshed natural of Bobal. The flavor is black fruits and sweet but only for a second as the perfectly integrated tannins sweep over the palate and aromas of banana, bubble gum, leather, tobacco and candy linger in the long finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Clos Lojen was fermented whole cluster and then aged in tank. Purple/black in color, it displays a bouquet of Asian spices, leather, tobacco, black cherry, and black raspberry fruit that leaps from the glass. Dense, rich, and vibrant on the palate with lively acidity that gives the wine remarkable lift for its size, it has the balance and structure to blossom for another 1-2 years but can be approached now. It is a great value that over-delivers big-time.
