Named after the hillside vineyard located on the northeastern slope of the Yerga mountains in eastern Rioja, La Montesa is a blend of the red grape varieties that grow organically on the Palacios Remondo estate. 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.
50% Garnacha and 50% Tempranillo
"The purple-colored 2006 La Montesa is 55% Garnacha, 40% Tempranillo, and 5% Mazuelo aged for 12 months in a mix of new and used French and American oak. The nose gives up scents of cedar, leather, mineral, incense, black cherry, and blackberry. This is followed by a structured wine that is a bit short on depth. The flavors are savory and lingering and the wine has some finesse. Two more years in bottle may well fill it out.
