2009 Palacios Remondo ‘La Montesa’ Rioja

2009 Palacios Remondo 'La Montesa' RiojaThis is the “food-friendly wine” that was chosen as “wine of the week” by Irene Virbila in the LA Times. She wrote: “Spain’s Alvaro Palacios is that rare winemaker who makes great wine at every price level. This happens to be one of his lower-priced wines, yet this 2009 Rioja from the La Montesa Vineyard has all the right stuff.

“The smooth blend of 65% Garnacha, 30% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo tastes of cherries, plums and white pepper, an elegant Rioja for well under $20. It’s a versatile, food-friendly wine that goes with just about anything: burgers, barbecue, tapas, paella, grilled meats.”
