2012 Palacios Remondo 'La Montesa' Rioja
Comprised of 80% Garnacha, 15% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo (Carignane) from an estate in Rioja Baja, this is an absolutely unbeatable value in Rioja, heck, even in red wine in general. The Wine Advocate heaped it with praise: "This ripe 2012 has a heady nose of cherries in liqueur but also black and sour cherries, unnoticeable oak plus just a pinch of dark spices. The palate is soft and silky, with ultra-fine tannins, great acidity and balance. Again, a great showing for La Montesa. This wine is a true bargain; typical Rioja at an unbeatable price. Hard to beat as a great value."

Leading the pack and embodying "The New Spain," Alvaro Palacios seems written for the part. Rioja is where he was raised and gleaned a deep understanding of the nuances of the area surrounded by the family wine business. The Rioja native left for Priorato where he really cut his teeth making wines and a name for himself. After his father's passing in 2000, he stepped up to run the family business. He immediately set his intention to honoring his father's memory by taking the estate's quality to new heights. His recent vintages more than show the depth of his commitment. Alvaro's first step was to redefine the estate's viticultural practices lowering grape yields in order to improve quality. Additionally, he committed to growing organically and making wines with as minimal intervention as possible. Under his inspired leadership, Palacios Remondo is one of Rioja's brightest new stars.About Palacios Remondo
