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.
Wine Review
In a departure from traditional oak dominated Riojas, the bright ruby-purple Montebuena gives center stage to the spicy, crunchy varietal character of 100% Tempranillo grapes, which are hand-harvested from its vineyards in Alfaro, La Rioja. The bouquet serves up lovely notes of cherry-vanilla and rose petals, followed on the palate by lush, mouth-filling red and black fruit, with hints of red currant and damp earth. A polishing sheen of vanilla oak imparts a distinct touch of class to the finish.
