Palacios achieves from his family's estate in Alfaro. Juicy notes of cherry, raspberry and orange peel meld with herbal undertones to create a wine that is balanced, bright and lively. 92% Garnacha, 8% Other red grapes  WINERY

Stunning mountain freshness with delicate floral notes and mineral energy, this is a standout 2016 Rioja that shows what was possible in this vintage.  Great energy on the breathtakingly bright finish.  Enormously food-flexible.  JAMES SUCKLING

I returned to the 2016 La Montesa once it had been in bottle for almost eight months. It has all the rosemary, thyme and aromatic plants in the Monte Yerga in Alfaro. It has a note of incense. It's super juicy Garnacha with citrus freshness. It's incredible to have this quality at this price and almost unbelievable that they produced 690,000 bottles of it. A steal!  ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE

This polished red offers cherry, tangerine and vanilla flavors, with a fruity sweetness, backed by gentle tannins and sweet-tart acidity. Not a big wine, but harmonious and graceful. Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo. Drink now through 2024.  WINE SPECTATOR
