Ferrer Bobet is primarily a blend of Carignane and Grenache, from hundred year old vines in some of the best vineyards in Priorat, sourced while their own vineyards mature. Though the "second wine" of Ferrer Bobet, the initial 2005 release put Ferrer Bobet on the wine world map. It launched the Ferrer Bobet mission of creating wines of elegance and purity, and the message has resonated.
"The 2008 Ferrer/Bobet is a vibrant offering with an expressive nose of cedar, spicy black fruits, exotic spices, and lavender. Only time will tell whether the 2009 is better than this beauty."
The Wine Advocate
"Saturated ruby. A highly perfumed, seductive bouquet features candied red and dark berries, cola, incense and violet, with mineral and star anise accents. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and cherry flavors show a suave blend of richness and vivacity and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Fine-grained tannins build on a finish that's sweet, focused and very long. This wine is balanced and concentrated for the long haul."
