Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The young 50/50 blend of Garnacha and Tempranillo from the zone of Alfaro in Rioja is the 2019 La Vendimia. It was scheduled to be bottled after mid-July 2020, after aging in oak vats and barrels for four months to add some complexity while preserving the freshness and primary character of the wine. It has a nose that combines the floral character of the Garnacha and the more serious profile of Tempranillo, with the two being quite integrated. It's juicy and lively, medium to full-bodied, with 14.3% alcohol, reflecting the heat and drought of the year. It has attractive aromas and flavors that are refined and elegant, gravitating toward floral and red fruit notes, and with very fine tannins that give it a silky texture. The mouthfeel is quite soft, with integrated acidity; it doesn't reflect the extreme conditions of the year and comes through as nicely balanced. There will be 337,000 bottles of this vintage.

Palacios Remondo La Vendimia is a coupage of equal parts of Tempranillo and Garnacha Tinta grape varieties.
The grapes come from our own vineyards located on the slopes of Mount Yerga, at an altitude of 550 meters above sea level. The soils are clayey and calcareous, and these give unbeatable conditions to the grapes grown there.
The grapes are harvested by hand, destemmed and partially vinified according to the carbonic maceration method in stainless steel tanks. The wine ferments for 20 days in stainless steel tanks with regular pumping over.
Once fermentation is complete, the wine is aged for 5 months in wooden vats and French oak barrels before bottling.
Palacios Remondo La Vendimia is a red wine with sweet tannins chiseled by an excellent acidity, a digestive freshness and a long finish. It is smooth on the palate and most satisfying.
In short, it is an enormously pleasurable wine and very easy to drink.
