Palacios Remondo

La Montesa Rioja Garnacha de Yerga 2016

La Montesa by trailblazing winemaker Alvaro Palacios at the helm of the family estate Palacios Remondo in Alfaro, Rioja Oriental/Rioja Baja, the sometimes snubbed, southernmost subzone within the Rioja appellation. Fruit is sourced from from Palacios Remondo’s eponymous 90-hectare vineyard on the northeastern slope of Monte Yerga, at an altitude of 1,800 feet. Fresh, elegant, refined, structured. Juicy fruit, spicy finish. — 2 years ago

Alfaro Vineyard Grüner Veltliner 2014

Green-ish golden intensity in the glass. Sautéed greens // yeasty-cheesy // broccoli // Granny Smith Apple skin // acid // more apple // oak is very subtle (neutral oak fermentation) but welcome for its added softness. Grüvy ✌️ — 6 years ago

Pretty dark and brooding for Santa Cruz. Showing blue fruit and iodine on the nose, palate opens to more riper, red raspberry. — 2 years ago

Maceracion Carbonica Rioja Tempranillo 2016

Fresh and distinctively red in terms of fruit color. I sense a hint of vanilla as it opens up. A bit of grassy texture on the palate too. Really nice! — 3 years ago

Alfaro Family Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Remarkable 2014 Pinot Noir from Big Basin Vineyards. They've made a stream of my favorite wines of the year and this may top it all - so far. Spicy and funky and will get better with age. Winery of the year!? — 6 years ago

Trout Gulch Vineyard Chardonnay
