A brilliant buy, the newly released Volver Tarima Hill Old Vine Monastrell 2016 is a deep purple/black. Intriguing aromas of blackberry, blueberry, pomegranate, sage, Kalamata olive, balsamic, pie spice and white pepper combine with ripe and rich black fruit on the palate leading to a lengthy finish. This is an elegant expression of Mourvedre that values grace over sheer power; an entirely captivating glass of wine.

Volver was founded in 2004 by Jorge Ordonez and enologist Rafael Canizares. The winery has vineyards in the D.O.’s of La Mancha, Jumilla, and Alicante. In addition to the Tarima Hill Monastrell, this family of wines includes Tarima, Paso a Paso, Triga and others we have featured, all great values as well. Canizares is now the sole proprietor of Volver and continues to release wines of exceptional personality at bargain prices.

The grapes for Tarima Hill are meticulously sorted at the winery, then fermented in stainless steel open top fermenters using indigenous yeast. The wine is transferred to primarily new French oak barrels as well as some second use barrels for the malolactic fermentation. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, Tarima Hill is a complex and elegant expression of the most authentic clones of Monastrell in the world.

91 points, Smart Buy, Wine Spectator:

"This bold red is intense and expressive. Cassis and blueberry flavors mingle with cola, cocoa and licorice notes. Chewy tannins and balsamic acidity amplify the impact. Heady, ripe and in the modern style. Monastrell. Drink now through 2024."

This is a superb wine. Any time you'd like to experience a Spanish parallel to a good California Zinfandel for half the price of one, this is it - Heady, hearty, spicy, rich and delicious! Highly recommended.
