Volver, a Wine From La Mancha






Volver Tempanillo by Jorge Ordonez


Very deep-dark purple in color. Smoky on the nose with dark cherries, plum, ripe blueberries and sweet vanilla. Fairly full-bodied and tannic on the palate, showing the same dark-black fruits. Complex layers of oak, roasted coffee beans, spice, and even though the alcohol is at 15%, the wine is remarkably well balanced. Really stays with you on the finish, perfectly good to drink by itself, but I would recommend some of the food pairings suggested below.
The Volver is drinking great right now, but would even reward a few years in the cellar (or in my case, “the closet”).



Food Pairing

Wines made from the Tempranillo grape are some of the most food friendly wine available. They have good acidity, but not so much that they dominate over tapas, herb roasted pork/lamb, grilled beef tenderloin, chorizo, paella or even manchego cheese.




$15.99, and sees fairly widespread retail presence. However; I seriously have no idea why the Volver is this inexpensive!
