About

91

"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. 10,000 cases made, 9,000 cases imported. — TM"

Product Description:

"Bodegas Volver currently owns some 185 hectares in Alicante. Some of the vines are ungrafted. New acreage is currently under development.The vines age from 40 to 75 years old. Tarima Hill's vines are planted in the Vaso system, in an all-natural (almost organic) process with no irrigation. The combination of soil profile and diverse altitudes within this very small area sets up a micro-climate that is predominately Continental along with some Mediterranean influence. This results in a balanced acidity and sugar content." - Winery
