External Reviews for Pelta
The perfect red for every occasion: pasta, chicken or vegetarian. This blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Monastrell sees no oak. Bright berry and pepper are the dominant flavors, and the finish is clean. This is a wine to buy by the case. Everybody needs a Tuesday night wine - this is it.
Deep red. Fresh red berries and minerals on the nose. Juicy, straightforward berry flavors are complemented by gentle spice and cracked pepper qualities, with a bitter note on the back end. Finishes chewy but a tad rigid, with good tangy persistence.
The 2008 Pelta is 80% Tempranillo and 20% Monastrell raised in stainless steel. It exhibits a fragrant nose of underbrush, blackberry, and blueberry pie. Surprisingly rich and deep for a wine of this price, it should drink well for another three years.
100% Garnacha (Grenache), this medium-bodied red boasts expressive, red candy-like flavors and those of cherry liqueur, raspberries and melted licorice.

Bodegas Enguerarsquo;s 2009 Pella is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Monastrell raised in stainless steel.

Drink this excellent value over the next 3 years.
