Volver Alicante Tarima Hill Old Vines 2015 (92 points, $17)
This red shows grace and depth. Black cherry, plum, mineral and smoke flavors mingle harmoniously over well-integrated tannins, while lively acidity keeps this focused. Not showy, but all the pieces fit together. Balanced, in the modern style. Monastrell. Drink now through 2025. 10,000 cases imported. From Spain.—Thomas Matthews
