Montebuena Rioja 2010

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Vivid ruby. 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.

The 2010 Montebuena Cuvee KPF is a blend made for the US importer, Kysela Pere et Fils. It has a perfumed wild strawberry and raspberry scented nose that shows fine definition and purity. The palate is well-balanced with supple strawberry fruit laced with cocoa and leather, leading to a finely tuned, silky finish with just the right amount of dryness to urge another sip. Drink now–2016.

Our best-selling (and best value!) Rioja. A softer, modern style, with smooth tannins and vibrant red fruit notes, that finishes clean and easy. Subtle layers of spice and oak add depth and elegance. Food pairing: red meats, pasta, poultry Flavor type: traditional Body type: medium Finish: elegant
