Volver Alicante Tarima Hill Old Vines 2019 (92 points, $17)
An aromatic underpinning of tarry smoke and medicinal herbs serves as a savory counterpoint to ripe flavors of crème de cassis, blackberry preserves, licorice and espresso crema in this rich red. A frame of sculpted tannins and lightly tangy citrus peel acidity are well-knit to the expressive flavor range, resulting in a powerful, harmonious version. Monastrell. Drink now through 2029. 15,000 cases made, 9,000 cases imported. From Spain.—Alison Napjus
