Blackberry and jamy with a hint of smokiness on the nose. Nice tannins. Goes well with cheese. Great deal for $12.

A solid, lighter Rioja. The oak does come through nicely on the finish. Very good quality for the price. It goes well with lots of different foods.

This ripe Rioja comes from the Bodega Bugo Viejo, a winery started by six vineyard farming families. They combined their resources into a 500 acre estate and build a state-of-the-art production facility. Located at the far eastern end of Rioja, the vineyards are on the foothills of the "Montebuena" Yerga Mountain. A first release from the outstanding 2009 vintage, this super-value red scored 90 points in the Wine Advocate who said "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."
