ROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS - "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, but this beauty is priced just over $16."

Mr. Parker puts it like in his review: “wines such as this normally sell for $30-$50 a bottle, but this beauty is priced at just over $16.” We might say it a little differently, but the Volver is truly one of those “only in Spain” kind of wines—great quality fruit, low yields, hand-picked, with lavish new French oak at a “how do they do it” price tag. Volver is not just a nicely made, “entry-tier” bottling, but the blue-label Volver we’ve been carrying for several years is actually a single vineyard wine pulled from the winery’s best site. Volver’s Finca los Juncares is planted on low-vigor sand mixed with a small top-layer of iron-rich clay—the age of the vines and poor soils keep the yields low. Volver is always a rich, luscious Tempranillo and the 2011 shows the sort of sensuous blueberry fruit we expect from this vineyard. The 2011 Volver 2011 shows lovely floral notes, violets and dried rose petals, than we don’t remember from year’s past.
