Vintages Wine Panel: Alvaro Palacios is the embodiment of the promise and spirit of new Spanish winemaking. He immediately injected new life into the Riojan property of Herencia Remondo by dramatically reducing yields in the vineyards. He concentrates on two wines for this property, the high-end Propiedad and this finely tuned Crianza, La Montesa. Filled with dark fruits, cloves, fresh herbs and smoky oak, this Crianza is well made and perfectly balanced. The snappy acids and ripe tannins support the fruit aromas and flavors with precision. My note: A rich, provocative red with vibrant red fruit notes.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
