Volver Paso A Paso Tinto 2008, La Mancha, Spain
We popped the cork on this, cellar temperature, dark purple ink wine one hour before tasting. Lora tried this wine blind. The bouquet wafted a slight front end of alcohol and baked bread, with a red raspberry caboose.
The raspberry and tannins explode in the front of your palate. This is followed with a luscious heavy complete mid palate. The long lasting finish lies smooth and delicate. Those of you who remember LA VIE, Raspberry (Les Framboises) hard candies, that came in a small round tin can, this memory is exactly the finish. I don’t need a LA VIE Raspberry today, but I’ll be searching for a tin tomorrow. We bought this wine at Bev-Mo www.bevmo.com. Please let me know your thoughts and comments.
Skoal! Steve and Lora
