La Vendimia Palacios Remondo Tempranillo Garnacha 2008
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
La Vendimia Palacios Remondo Tempranillo Garnacha 2008 Wine Review
Vintages Wine Panel: This wine is simultaneously modern and old school. Modern, because this fresh, bright, flavourful red is the product of a cutting-edge winery; old school, because it’s made with a higher percentage of Garnacha — a practice more common in Rioja Baja where superstar winemaker, Alvaro Palacios, is from. The blend here is 50% Tempranillo and 50% Garnacha. Look for aromas of blackberry jam, fresh raspberry and a hint of Mediterranean country herbs (a.k.a. garrigue). Enjoy this wine. It will also age gracefully for 4+ years. My note: A juicy, generous and voluptuous red with rich, round notes of black plums and berries. Full-bodied and smooth. 4.4/5 Tempranillo Garnacha food pairings: beef ragout, grilled liver and onions.
