Natalie's Score: 92/100

Founded in 1998 by Alvaro Palacios, one of the most respected winemakers in Spain. A rich, meaty wine of great balance and length. Savory with blackberries and pepper. Full-bodied with an attractive subtle herbal note mid-palate. This wine is made from the Mencia grape, which is called Jaen in Portugal. Lovely dark spices and pepper on the finish. Great for the cellar or enjoy now after decanting for an hour. Top me up!

Food pairings: shepherds pie, hamburgers, chicken with goat cheese, herbed crusted tenderloin.

The 2011 vintage of Petales from Alvaro Palacios continues to deliver superb value and flavour. There were 320,000 bottles produced of this full-bodied red wine. Aromas of violets, smoke and wild berries. Lovely. There were 320,000 bottles produced of this full-bodied red wine. - Community Wine Reviews
