Wine Review: This ruby colored Spanish wine opens with a strawberry, red cherry and mild cedar bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty plum and mild cinnamon blend with hints of faint red raspberry and a touch of cherry. The finish is dry and its well-managed moderate tannins drift away nicely. This wine is very food friendly and will not last long when shared. It will pair well with many dishes. I would pair it with a honey garlic glazed pork loin roast. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2016 La Montesa showcases the freshness, purity and elegance that Alvaro 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.
