Bodegas Volver 2011

Bodegas Volver 2011
buy-now92 Points! – Robert Parker
Special Price $14.99/bottle ($179.88/case) Bodegas Volver, is owned by Jorge Ordonez and Rafael Canizares. This is the flagship wine from Bodegas Volver, a single vineyard Tempranillo that consistently receives great press and sells out as fast as it hits the floor. Last year Volver was sold out by May.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 mouth feel, 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, but this beauty is priced @ $15. How can one go wrong?! 92pts Robert Parker.
