2010 Montebuena "Cuvée KPF" Rioja
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Ripe cherry and blackcurrant on the nose and in the mouth. Pliant and seamless in texture, with good heft and back-end energy. Finishes smooth and sweet, with fine-grained tannins providing shape and grip. Still on the young side but this wine drinks very well with an hour or so of decanting; it's an excellent value for Rioja.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Montebuena is more lifted aromatically but otherwise displays the positive attributes of its older sibling. It, too, will provide pleasure for another 3-4 years.
Very good example of a fresh Rioja, with bright, forward cherry fruits on a medium-bodied frame. Juicy, uncomplicated, and very well made wine for the right price!
