Tempranillo — the old noble grape of Spain — gets a modern twist. Boca is Spanish for mouth and the flashy website proclaims the wine is a “rock star in the wine world ready to be discovered.”
The grapes are sourced from the Valencia region on the center of Spain’s east coast. After cold maceration and fermentation in stainless steel, a portion of the wine is aged in oak and then blended before bottling.
The result is a very fruit-forward, easy-drinking offering with great appeal to new red wine drinkers. We tend to like the old school wines.
