Bodegas Volver Tarima Hill Monastrell Alicante 2012 Red Spanish Wine


91 Points – International Wine Cellar, September/October 2013 "(100% monastrell, from vines that were planted between 1935 and 1970; malo and 20 months of elevage in French oak): Bright purple. Complex, perfumed scents of dark berry liqueur, cola, incense and smoky oak spices. Plush and expansive, offering sweet cherry compote and blueberry flavors complicated by notes of floral pastille and bitter chocolate. At once rich and lively, finishing with excellent power, smooth tannins and a late jolt of allspice. Boasts surprising vivacity for its depth and richness." -Josh Raynolds 91 Points – Wine Advocate, November 2013 "The 2011 Tarima Hill is made from old vine Mourvedre grown at a high elevation of 2,000-2,500 feet. Aged 20 months in French oak, its sensational inky/purple color is followed by a sweet bouquet of acacia flowers, blueberry liqueur, blackberries and graphite, and a full-bodied, rich mouthfeel. This sensational red wine could easily sell for three to five times the price with no complaints. It should age easily for another 5-6 years." -Robert Parker
