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.

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.

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 3-4 years.

Opaque violet. Musky cherry-cola and plum aromas are completed by notes of cured tobacco and cracked pepper. Tangy minerality adds verve to chewy dark fruit flavors, with a brighter raspberry note emerging with aeration. Finishes with solid grip and an echo of pepper. Serve this with a piece of grilled lamb.

Bright purple. Lively aromas of fresh red berries, cherry and oak spice, with notes of smoky herbs and sandalwood adding complexity. On the oaky side but offers good depth and flavors of creamy raspberry and blueberry. Becomes tangier with air and finishes with clinging sweetness and good length. This wine is sold in some markets as Paso a Paso Organic Tempranillo.

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.
