Palacios Remondo Tempranillo Blend Rioja la Montesa Crianza 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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. The wine is crimson in color with complementary aromas of ripe strawberries, fresh plums, toasted notes, and a hint of blood orange. On the palate, it is velvety and vibrant, with succulent flavors of soft minerals, chocolate-covered cherries, toffee, and white pepper. Meant to enjoy now or age up to ten years, this wine is very versatile and pairs well with flavorful cuisine.

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

Herbal, gamy notes give this polished red a slightly feral character, accenting a core of plum and licorice. Features a polished texture, and the light tannins and lively acidity are well-balanced.

Ruby-red. Pungent aromas of dark berries and cherry pit, with hints of woodsmoke and singed plum. Fleshy and open-knit, offering dense cherry and cassis flavors and a smoky licorice note. Displays good concentration and depth and finishes broad an... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2008 Palacios Remondo Rioja Herencia Remondo La Montesa 750ml

Intensiv leuchtende rubinrote Farbe mit guter Ablagerung. In seiner Nase frisch und ausgewogen mit Nuancen wilder Beeren, Konfitüre und Schokolade. Zudem sind für das Holz typische Röst- und Vanillearomen festzustellen. Am Gaumen offenbart sich dieser Rioja Crianza robust, grosszügig und mit einer optimalen Struktur und zeigt sich im Nachgeschmack körper- und tanninreich.

Tasting Notes:

Restraint in both oak and ripeness mark Palacios Remondo, and this 2008 is no exception. For the moment, the oak offers vanilla and caramel notes, as well as cinnamon; in a year or two from now, those notes will integrate further and the interplay of red fruits, dried fruits, and minty herbs will be more prominent.
