Bodegas Volver ‘Tarima’ Organic Monastrell
Tastes Like: Dark Berries, Dried Herbs, Spice
This Wine Enthusiast ‘Best Buy’ is made from 100% Monastrell (a.k.a. Mourvedre). This famed Chateauneuf-du-Pape grape has found a new home in Spain’s Alicante region, where it develops deep, rich, and concentrated flavors.
“Dark aromas of grilled meat and black fruits are normal for Alicante Monastrell, while this feels juicy and bright despite being fully ripe. Spicy dark plum and clove flavors end with a wave of spicy, jammy berry flavors. While this is big and oaky, it’s not unnatural or overworked.” – Wine Enthusiast
