Cranberry, licorice, smoke on the palate. Fleshy mouthfeel. Low intensity finish, but an altogether pleasant if uncomplicated rioja.

I purchased the 2009 Montebuena Rioja on the strength of Robert Parker's 90 point review and the ten dollar price tag. This is the first Tempranillo I've ever tried, so I can't say where this wine ranks based on the varietal, though I certainly thought it was a good value. Light purple and medium bodied with a bright berry aroma, this wine is crisp and approachable, though somewhat lacking in depth (again, this could be a characteristic of the varietal). The flavor has a strong under-ripened raspberry component - a bit tart for my taste - and a decent finish with just enough tannins to satisfy that red-wine craving. Not my favorite style perhaps, but I would definitely recommend this as a good red wine to drink on a hot summer day based on its bright, acidic flavor profile.

A relatively deep and extracted style of Tempranillo is the Labastida, showing bold, ripe flavors of black cherry and dark fruit as well as hints of Tempranillo's tell-tale cigar-box aromas. A great buy.

Here is a wine with finesse! Bright berry fruit flavors are seamlessly integrated with soft oak nuances to create a wine that is nothing if not elegant. 100% Tempranillo. Simply lovely.

A contender for best value in my Spanish tastings, this delicious Rioja is dark ruby in color, with aromas of earth, spice, and red fruits. It has surprising depth, ripe, smoky, cherry flavors, light tannin, and an excellent pure finish. This terrific bargain can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.

Made from 100% Tempranillo, this medium-bodied Spanish red displays bright, fruity aromas and a spicy vanilla bouquet. A smooth, fruit-forward style makes this a perfect introductory Spanish Rioja. The finish is persistent and pleasing. Perfect for those getting bored with domestic varietals.

The great Spanish values just keep coming! This Rioja is another stellar example of the quality that we've grown to expect, at an affordable price to boot. Aged in oak, this red possesses full flavors with light licorice and blackberry nuances. Despite the big flavors, there is a gentleness to this wine that makes it approachable and a good choice for those looking to explore beyond Grenache- or Shiraz-based wines.

A relatively deep and extracted style of Tempranillo, showing bold, ripe flavors of black cherry and dark fruit as well as hints of cigar-box aromas. A great buy in red wine - an unbelievable buy in Rioja.
