Ferrer Bobet Priorat 2012

It takes a lot of restraint for me not to call this wine Boba Fett, so I will not do that here.  From Wine Advocate

The 2012 Vinyes Velles is a blend of Cariñena with 30% Garnacha from the cooler part of the village of Porrera. It is fermented in a mixture of oak and stainless steel and matured in French oak barrels for 15 months. The 2012 feels very young and primary with beautiful notes of violets and peaches, still showing some puppy fat than needs to be rendered with some time in bottle, as well as some creamy notes and a toffee-like hints that should meld beautifully. They produce elegant results once they have some bottle age. The palate is medium to full-bodied with very fine tannins and great acidity, as 2012 was cooler than 2011, there is great purity of fruit with a perfect degree of ripeness. Quality at affordable prices. 18,864 bottles produced.
