About the Tarima Hill Old Vines

If the Tarima Hill Old Vines, at under $15,  is half as good as its prestigious rating, that translates to one of the great wine bargains of the new year. I purchased a bottle of the Tarima Hill at the Foster City Costco for $11.79.  After I returned home, I received an email alert from KL Wines announcing the Tarima Hill at the KL Wine stores for $13.99. Checking the tech sheet at Bodegas Volver, we know the wine is 100% Monastrell from the D.O. Alicante in eastern Spain in the province of Valencia. The grapes are from multiple vineyards planted between the years 1935 and 1970. The vines are all dry farmed. The wine was aged for 14 months in French Oak. Alcohol is 15%.

Give the wine some breathing time; it opened up considerably an hour after I corked the wine. The aroma is enticing, with a mix of flavors including spice and floral characteristics. The Tarima Hill has a great taste in the mouth, rich and flavorful. It is balanced perfectly and drinks softer than the indicated 15% alcohol. The finish is quite generous. In short, a lovely wine that will be quite pleasing to red wine lovers. The 100% Monastrell (same as Mourvedre) grape provides a pleasing and captivating wine. Very delicious and I rate the wine at 90 Points. My Costco has a generous supply, and you can check the K&L Website to get the current inventory at its stores.
