Produced by Bodegas Volver, Tarima Hill (2015) is a 100% old-vines Monastrell with wine grapes sourced from the Alicante, Valencia wine region. This is a full-bodied, elegant red wine with layers of red plum, ripe cherry, earthy florals and cake spice flavours on palate. Drink now and for the next five years.

Monastrell food pairings: veal stew with sautéed vegetables, roast quail wrapped in prosciutto, beef bourguignon, grilled tuna with a pepper crust, pork tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This wine is of exceptional quality. Year in and year out, it overdelivers. It's the type of wine that makes you scratch your head a bit when it comes to the price tag. This is serious Monastrell that is reminiscent of Bandol, with about 20% less tanninc structure. A solid core of chalky blackberry and black plum fruit, along with cassis, burnt garrigue, dried flowers and a hit of mocha. There's a whiff of Kenya AA coffee that emerges about 30 minutes after decanting. The finish goes on and on. This demands red meat...roasted, not grilled. Drink now through 2025. 93 Points.

This is a full-bodied, elegant red wine with layers of red plum, ripe cherry, earthy florals and cake spice flavours on palate. There is just a hint of smoke (20 months in oak barrel) which is nicely integrated. Acidity is good and drink now with a roast leg of lamb or hold in cellar for five years. - Community Wine Reviews
