Bodegas Volver Tarima Monastrell 2015
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE WINE SPECTATOR TOP 100 WINE!! THIS IS ALSO MADE BY BODEGAS VOLVER, BUT IT IS NOT THE OLD VINES THAT MADE THE LIST!!
Tarima Hill is a complex, elegant, varietal expression of the most authentic clones of Monastrell in the world.
Wine AdvocateAnother terrific value is the 2015 Tarima (Nonorganic) from Alicante and another 100% Mourvèdre cuvée, aged six months in French oak. This wine has terrific aromatics, broad, expansive flavors, about 15% natural alcohol and an expansive, heady mouthfeel. This is rich, dense and Provençal in its flavor components. Totally aged in used oak and stainless steel, the wine is a real sleeper and big-time winner in the values sweepstakes. Drink it over the next several years.
