2009 Montebuena Rioja

SKU #1059572

90 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Montebuena is 100% Tempranillo. Dark ruby-colored, it offers an appealing perfume of spice box, leather, tobacco, and blackberry. On the palate it is packed with ripe fruit, has outstanding concentration, and impeccable balance. It is a great bargain that offers a sneak preview of the great 2009 vintage in Rioja and northern Spain in general. It should drink well for 6-8 years." (April 2010)

OK for the price, but over rated by Parker. It is a bit on the light side for a Rioja, but it drinks well on a hot day.

A very average Rioja -- pleasant enough for an every day wine, but not a 90 point wine by any stretch.
