Pelta 2009

External Review:

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 andmdash; 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. Dark ruby-colored, it gives up an expressive nose of mineral, spice box, violets, blackberry, and blueberry. Smooth-textured, forward, and easy-going, the winersquo;s finish has no hard edges. Drink this excellent value over the next 3 years.
