680 NEWS wine reviews – October 14–16, 201 

Palacios Remondo La Vendimia 2014
Alvaro Palacios is one of Spain's great winemakers whose range of wines can get very pricey. But at the introductory level he makes a bargain wine from Rioja – Palacios Remondo La Vendimia 2014 – that sells for an affordable $15.95. Deep ruby-plum in colour, the wine has an earthy, cedary nose of sour cherries. Medium- to full-bodied, it's dry and fruity and easy drinking. The wine always contains around 8% of wine from the previous harvest that stays in barriques for one year. Try it with paella or with spicy sausages. That's Palacios Remondo La Vendimia 2014 from Spain at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($15.95, Vintages #674564) (88)

Barahonda Barrica Monastrell/Syrah 2012
The French call it Mourvèdre; the Californians call it Mataro; but to the Spanish, the grape is called Monastrell. Currently at Vintages outlets is a Monastrell/Syrah blend from the Yecla denomination. Barahonda Barrica Monastrell/Syrah 2012 is dense purple in colour with a spicy, cedary nose of plums and dried herbs. Full-bodied and dry, the wine offers richly extracted flavours of black cherries, licorice and pepper. It costs $17.95 and would be the ideal partner for a pepper steak or a mature cheddar. That's Barahonda Barrica Monastrell/Syrah 2012 from Spain. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($17.95, Vintages #378869) (88.5)
