Montecil Rioja Reserve 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep cherry red with russet rim. Clean and brilliant. Spicy notes, vanilla and black fruit, balanced by an elegant touch of oak. Spice and notes of fine aging. Good structure, elegant tannins, and a pleasant, lingering finish. An ideal companion for grilled or barbecued red meat, all types of stew, and spicy dishes. A powerful wine, it also enhances the flavor of fish such as tuna, salmon or cod.

Nice simple Rioja. Medium body. Smooth and fruity, slightly dry. Nice blend of raspberry,cherry,and licorice somewhat masked with oak on the finish. Solid wine that is a great bargan if you can get deep deal at $6.99.

87 Points - Wine Enthusiats Winemaker's Notes: Clean and briliant coloring with deep cherry red hues and a russet rim. The bouquet is filled with notes of spice, vanilla, and black fruits, rounded by an elegant touch oak. On the palate there is good structure and elegant tannins with spice and ageing notes. Enjoy the long finish and pleasant aftertaste of this wine. An ideal companion for grilled or barbecued red meat and all types of stew, including spicy dishes. A powerful wine, it also enhances the flavor of fish such as tuna, salmon or cod.

Silky smooth with elegant fruit, fine dusty tannins and very pleasing complexity, this wine offers a classic expression of Rioja.

An Astor favorite for years. Soft and smooth, the ripe cherry and mellow oak flavors are great with a broad range of simply flavored meats and vegetable dishes.
