Lovamor or less

Maestro Tejero 2010 “Lovamor” Albillo (Castilla & León) – I don’t love this. I don’t really actually like it or dislike it much, in fact. It just kind of sits there, narrow and a bit blobby, some sort of pale white fruit knobbed with a flaky aromatic that reminds me of too-old coconut. A proto-orange (more like pale flesh) wine it’s supposed to be, but the textural enhancement is minimal at best. It’s extremely brief, as well. I’ve had José Pastor-imported wines that I haven’t liked before, but I’ve never had one that bored me. All this said, my description doesn’t match anyone else’s that I could find, and I wonder if this bottle was intact. (12/11)
