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.

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

A bright, zingy garnacha and tempranillo blend, this is a wine needing to be consumed in the first hour after uncorking. The nose opens with aromas of strawberry, coffee, nutmeg and sweet spices, followed by hints of floral perfumes and spices. The palate introduces a medley of strawberry, plum and wild red berries, mixed with flavors of coffee and tobacco, leading to a peppery finish with a pleasant zing. During the medium finish, bright notes of the wine’s red fruit theme emerge through a cloud of unobtrusive licorice, earth, cut grass, smoke and tobacco. A simple, light wine, the Montessa 2005 provides a zesty pre-meal drinking treat that leaves the palate fresh, clean and prepared for foods and wines to follow. Becomes thin and less zingy at 1 ½ hours as acidity fades.

Very complex aroma, with pepper and red berries predominating. Nice medium body/texture. Light to moderate tannins for a red, finish is soft but solid. Good pair with spicy steak salad tonight.

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.

Klares, strahlendes mittleres Gelb mit leicht grünlichen Reflexen.Komplexes und intensives Bukett, dass geprägt ist von Zitrusfrüchten, grünem Apfel, Annanas und fein unterlegter Honig- und Vanillenote. Am Gaumen schöne Balance zwischen Frucht und Säure. Harmonisch und mit  cremiger Textur überzeugt uns dieser weisse Rioja mit einem langen Finale.
