Montebuena Rioja 2009
Nice dark purple color in the glass. Dark cherry aromas with some blackberry, leather and a hint of pepper. In the mouth were loads of blackberry, some cherry and spice with hints of mocha. The wine finished long, smooth and dry with lots of fruit and a bit of vanilla.
Shirley didn't make the spaghetti sauce, so we settled for some sloppy joes for a quick evening meal. This was a great red wine with the chili sauce used in the BBQ style sloppy joes. The wine was also great just sipping afterwards. A very nice Spanish wine with a very nice price tag. I was able to return to the wine shop and pick up a few more. Can't think of a better way to spend my autumn Sunday afternoons then watching the NFL and sipping on a delicious Montebuena Rioja.
