A creamy, full-bodied red with plum and berry character. Nice purity of fruit to this. Its full-bodied and layered with polish and beauty. Lovely tannins here. - James Suckling Exopto is Latin for to long for or to desire greatly and it is the dream of Frenchman Tom Puyaubert and his family to endeavor to craft and assemble wines where the whole adds up to more than the sum of their parts. The hallmark of these wines are their elegance, freshness and gentle concentration of fruit. A deep red colour, dense and bright in appearance, there are pronounced aromas of cherry and strawberry, with mineral and floral notes. A luscious palate of strawberry and cranberry flavours supply a sweetness that contrasts with the pleasant acidity, the finish soft, elegant and long.

Robert Parker

The red 2019 Bozeto de Exopto is a blend of 50 Tempranillo from balos with the Mediterranean touch of 40 Garnacha and 10 Graciano from Alfaro to add freshness. He wants the wine to express the Garnacha character, and it does but in a subtler way than if it was a varietal bottling. But all the grapes seem nicely integrated and complement each other. The wine fermented in a combination of stainless steel, concrete vats and used barriques, where it matured for six months. 2019 is a warmer, Mediterranean vintage, and the wine is soft and approachable, juicy and fruit driven.
