Palacios Remondo Tempranillo Blend Rioja la Montesa Crianza 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"Alvaro Palacios is particularly pleased with his 2004. it combines theripeness of this excellent vintage with the elegance for which he is renowned."(Simon Field MW-BBR Buyer)<br/><br/>"The vineyards at Palacios Remondo are organically farmed and the wines arebottled unfiltered and unfined. The 2004 Crianza "Montesa" is a blend of 45%Tempranillo, 40% Garnacha, and 15% Graciano and Mazuelo with ageing in Frenchoak. It is an elegant example of Rioja with smoky red currant, cherry andherbal aromas and flavors, ripe, silky tannins and a lengthy finish."<br/>(Wine Advocate - Feb-2007)

Palacios focused his efforts on the Crianza, La Montesa, a Garnacha-based blend from south-facing vineyards grown on the lower slopes of the Yerga mountain range, in pebble and clay soils. In the best vintages, Palacios also makes a top wine, Propiedad, a departure from his father’s use of traditional designations Reserva and Gran Reserva. The estate’s only white wine, Plácet, is made in small quantities from 100% barrel-fermented Viura, planted on the estate in 1989. The final wine, La Vendimia, with its eye-catching, contemporary label, is a fresh, fruit-driven value wine made from Tempranillo and  Garnacha. Palacios is committed to honoring his father’s memory by taking the estate’s quality to new heights, as evidenced by the suberb recent vintages.  Under his inspired leadership, Palacios Remondo is now a rising star of Rioja. http://www.foliowine.com/winery_pages/25_palacios_remondo/palacios_remondo.html Read less
