" Light & Fruity: Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.Smooth & Supple: Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.Earthy & Spicy: Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.Big & Bold: Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age. winemaker's notes: Produced from 100% Tempranillo grapes, which are hand harvested from the Montebuena vineyard. 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. critical acclaim: "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." "
