Wine Tasting Notes: 2010 Volver Single Vineyard Tempranillo

Volver  "Single Vineyard"  Tempranillo  2010 
 La Mancha, Spain     
 Grapes:  100% Tempranillo

La Mancha is a large, hot, and dusty wine region in the center of Spain. These weather conditions are renowned for creating ripe and concentrated wines in the right hands. All the grapes for this wine are hand picked from a single vineyard of 55-year-old Tempranillo vines. The wine is aged for fourteen months in new French oak barrels, and bottled unfiltered to preserve its intensity and character. Robert Parker gave this wine a score of 92—for some a testimony to the style and quality of this wine. The Volver portfolio has a broad range of wines and this Volver Single Vineyard Tempranillo is considered among their premier wines.

Marc's Tasting Notes:
Deep ruby, and showing aromas of blackberries, sweet spices, and dark plums, this carefully crafted 100% Tempranillo uses a single vineyard crop, hand picking and sorting, and 14 months in new French oak barrels. The fine oak influence is in superb balance with the fruit and acidity, but can certainly age for quite a few years. Definitely a must try for lovers of carefully crafted red wines.
