Remarkably suave and sophisticated tempranillo. It is clear that luxury juice is finding its way into this value cuvee from the Monteabellon, the winery flagship and name. Ribera del Duero enjoyed alone with Rioja a great 2010, so enjoy this fantasy value. Serious wine.

Bright purple. Sexy, primary aromas of black raspberry and cherry, with a spicy quality that gains strength with air. Lively and precise, showing an attractively sweet, open-knit personality, with a gentle floral note on the back half. Taut and clean, with good finishing clarity and lingering florality.
