Named after the hillside vineyard located on the northeastern slope of the Yerga mountains in eastern Rioja, La Montesa is a blend of the red grape varieties that grow organically on the Palacios Remondo estate. Ruby red in color with penetrating aromas of Mediterranean fruit, such as pomegranate and quince, that are mixed with carnations, rose water and flower nectar in the nose. On the palate, winemaker Alvaro Palacios describes the 2014 La Montesa as 'a wine that flows velvety smooth,' with 'harmonious notes of orange rind, fresh cherries and rosemary petals that culminate in a long and evocative finish.' Meant to enjoy now or age up to 10 years, Alvaro feels this is "a wine that invites you to enjoy life!" Perfect by-the-glass on its own or when paired with flavorful cuisine, La Montesa is a welcoming wine from Rioja that is sure to please both the novice and the true wine connoisseur alike.
