Volver Tempranillo Single Vineyard 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Peñín Guide to Spanish Wine: (100% tempranillo). Colour: cherry, garnet rim. Nose: ripe fruit, spicy, creamy oak, toasty, complex. Palate: powerful, flavourful, toasty, round tannins. (2014) 91 points Robert Parker: From holdings in La Mancha, the 2011 Volver (100% Tempranillo that spent 18 months in new French oak prior to being bottled unfiltered) is a 2,000-case cuvee that comes from a single vineyard. Abundant notes of acacia flowers intermixed with black currants and blackberries are offered in a flavorful, medium-bodied, slightly spicy format. A nicely textured mouthfeel, sweet tannin and a long finish suggest this stunning value will drink well for 3-4 years. Wines such as this normally sell for $30-$50 a bottle. (Nov 2013)

Schöner Schlotzwein für Abends. Trocken, aber mit schöner Frucht. Schmeckt wie Himbeer-Saft. Suchtgefahr! :-)

This was my first tempranillo in a long time and it did not disappoint. Dark opaque purple in the glass. Nose of dark fruits with sweet vanilla and some herbal notes. Supple body with more plum, raisin, and black cherry. Very nicely balanced tannins and acidity balance out this wine's 15% ABV. Long finish. Awesome value. An hour after opening, it was much better. Cellared for 2-3yrs it will be a spectacular wine.

Opaque dark plum hue, aromas of black fruits, cherry, plum and berry, with a hint of damp bark; flavor notes of black plums, blackberries and tobacco over an integrated finish that's surprising for its 15% alcohol.

Great wine. Picked up a lot of interesting stuff on the nose: barn yard at first, plum, later candy-like sweetness. Nice/soft tannins on the palate.

Therersquo;s raw intensity in this modern red, which offers assertive blackberry, espresso and anise flavors in a dense texture, with firm, chewy tannins. Best from 2011 through 2017.

Bright purple. Sexy aromas of blackberry, incense and cocoa powder are complemented by a suave smoky quality. Plush, creamy dark berry flavors posses plenty of weight but are energized by racy minerality. Chewy tannins arrive with air, adding grip to the broad, sappy, persistent finish. Complex enough to enjoy now.

Strikingly aromatic nose offers a pungent array of fruit, floral and herbal scents. Sweet cherry-vanilla and cola flavors coat the palate and are enlivened by juicy acidity. Supple tannins gain strength on the finish.

Saturated ruby. Strikingly aromatic nose offers a pungent array of fruit, floral and herbal scents. Sweet cherry-vanilla and cola flavors coat the palate and are enlivened by juicy acidity. Supple tannins gain strength on the finish, which strongly repeats the cola and floral qualities. This is ready to drink.

The 2007 Volver is sourced from a single 72 acre vineyard that was planted in 1967 with head pruned Tempranillo. The wine was barrel-fermented and aged for 14 months in new French oak. Purple-colored, it offers up an alluring aromatic array of pain grille, smoke, violets, black cherry, and blackberry that jumps from the glass. On the palate it is medium- to full-bodied with gobs of ripe fruit, succulent flavors, soft tannins, and excellent balance. This lengthy effort over-delivers big-time and is a superb value. Bodegas Volver is a partnership between enologist Rafael Canizares and importer Jorge Ordonez.

There has been viticulture in La Mancha since at least the 12th century, but it is believed that grapes were introduced by the Romans, as they were to the rest of Spain. The harsh conditions of La Mancha: hot (110deg;F.) in summer, cold (5deg;F.) in winter, drought and wind (remember the windmills of Don Quixote) and the old gnarled vines produce this wonderful, rich wine. Deep, brilliant ruby color, aromas of plum and dark, sweet cherries, and flavors of plum, cherry, cardamom, allspice and ginger combine in this full-bodied delicious wine. The smooth tannins, excellent mouthfeel and the long, satisfying finish complete the picture of this delightful wine. Serve with grilled venison fillets, Sparrrsquo;s Calabrese sausages, or sauteacute;ed calves liver; or rent the movie of the same name and serve the wine with manchego cheese. This is a wine to return to again and again!

The 2009 Tempranillo is produced from estate-grown fruit aged for 6 months in French oak. Cedar, spices, incense, violets, and blackberry aromas and flavors lead to a nicely proportioned, lengthy red that is similar in personality to its organic sibling but with slightly greater volume and length. This excellent value will drink nicely for another 3andndash;4 years.
