Bodegas Volver Triga Alicante 2012 Product #31015 (In Stock)
Bodegas Volver Triga Alicante 2012 Bodegas Volver Triga Alicante 2012

Another great vintage, even better price!  And, for some reason, now in a nice looking wood case, too.

"85% monastrell and 15% cabernet sauvignon.  Made from the estate's oldest monastrell vines, planted back to 1925. Inky ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes fresh black and blue fruits, incense, potpourri and five-spice powder. Stains the palate with intense boysenberry and cherry compote flavors, given spine and lift by a zesty mineral nuance. Densely packed yet lithe, finishing with outstanding thrust and smooth tannins that build slowly."  Vinous (Raynolds) 93 points

"A blend of head-pruned Monastrell with some Cabernet Sauvignon from chalk-rich soils fermented in open stainless-steel vats and aged in barrique for 20 months. You can feel the warmth and ripeness of the year in the aromas of prunes, blackberries, thyme and rosemary accented with plenty of sweet spices and smoky notes from the barrel that might need a little bit more time in bottle. The palate is full-bodied, with powerful tannins lifted by the alcohol on a warm finish. I'd wait a little bit for the bottle to render the puppy fat and allow the oak to better integrate. Drink the 2011 before this wine as it should age well."Wine Advocate 92 points

"This focused red offers a plush texture, with a firm backbone. Black cherry, spice, mineral and leafy flavors mingle harmoniously, with a good balance of well-integrated tannins and acidity. Toast and floral notes linger on the finish. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 91 points
