(From 2011 Vintage) 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 enticing aromas of cherries, long-stem strawberries, pomegranate juice and red grapefruit rind; this wine is silky on the palate with notes of Bing cherries, ripe nectarines and hints of Mediterranean aromatic herbs. Meant to enjoy now or age up to 10 years, this wine is very versatile and pairs well with flavorful cuisine.
