    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red in color with an amaranthine halo, renowned winemaker Alvaro Palacios describes this wine as containing complex aromas of syrup-covered cherries, fresh nectarines, quince paste and delicate notes of wood, white pepper and flint. On the palate the wine is unctuous and voluminous with soft tannins that are presented over a foundation of mixed berries, hints of white pepper, blood oranges and dark chocolate. Meant to enjoy now or age up to 10 years, this wine is very versatile and pairs well with almost any type of cuisine.

    Palacios Remondois committed to organic viticulture and natural winemaking practices, resulting in wines that express the true character of the estate's La MontesaVineyard.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 La Montesa is a blend of 65% Garnacha, 30% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo picked by hand from the namesake vineyard and aged 20% in new oak. It has a well-defined strawberry, Morello and shortcake-scented bouquet infused with fennel and licorice. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, expressive red berry fruit tinged with burnt toast and white pepper, and an elegant, caressing finish that speaks of its place. This is a very commendable Rioja.

    The Wine Advocate

    This red shows a fine balance of flesh and backbone, with a mix of plum, cherry and loam flavors framed by licorice and spice. Not a showy wine, but dense and harmonious.
