Tim Atkins- 94 points
One of Álavaro Palacios’ great achievements is to make wines of this quality in comparatively large (656,000 bottles) quantities. This blend of Garnacha with 2.8% Monastell is elegant, refined and stylishly oaked with pure red fruits, rose petal undertones and the racy acidity of the best mountain Garnachas. 2020-26

Wine Advocate- 92 points
The 2017 La Montesa is mostly Garnacha with some 8% other red varieties and comes from a warm and dry year that saw a very early harvest, up to 20 days earlier than usual. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in barrique for 12 months. It feels very Mediterranean, with notes of Mediterranean herbs and ripe berries. It’s juicy and lush, round and very pleasant, easy to drink. 670,000 bottles produced and will be labeled organic, very remarkable for such volume. It was bottled in May 2019.
