Looking hard to find a must have, value wine every week.  Loaded up on a bunch a few days ago and gave the 2009 Volver Tempranillo from the La Mancha region of Spain (central Spain growing region working hard to brand itself with a bearded man silhouette icon) a whirl tonight.  

Epiphany? Not really, but with a good, mandatory 2 hour airing it is rather a substantial mouthful for the $12.  Probably won’t eclipse their fabulous Manchego, but would make a rather nice mate I think (those and some Jamon Iberico)!  Worth trying. *
