Brilliant deep ruby red color, fruity aromas . Montebuena Red has a spicy vanilla bouquet and is smooth and fruity in the mouth with some well-integrated secondary nuances, full-flavored and a persistent pleasant finish. Produced from 100% Tempranillo grapes, which are hand harvested from the Montebuena vineyard.
Fruity & Smooth
ham, roast turkey, grilled salmon
Terrific value red for weekday drinking. plenty of ripe cherry fruit and super smooth... the Montebuena is a super red from the Rioja Baja.
Light & Fruity
It was pleasant but not outstanding. Light body.
3.5 stars, a tad thin in the mid palate for what I like in tempranillo. My first attempt at 'hyperdecanting' with a blender--really mellowed the tannins and moved the floral components to the forefront. Excellent QPR.
