Montecillo Rioja Gran Reserva 2005

Member Review by barri0s1872:

boy is this expressive but controlled; the nose is full of dark fruit, slight mint and herbs--- imagine overturning an herb garden somewhere in the back country, rustling the soil and plants around, and then shoving your nose into the dirt. It kind of reminds me of that. Ripe dark fruit otherwise, well balanced tannins. A beautifully done rioja :)

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