Bodegas Montecillo Gran Reserva 2008
Wine EnthusiastEarthy rooty aromas of aged dry berry fruits and tobacco are scratchy while hinting at complexity. In the mouth, this Gran Reserva is drawing and tight. Herbal raspberry and dried cherry flavors finish with raw tannins and oaky vanilla flavors. Drink now through 2020.
Wine SpectatorThis polished red shows modest flavors of cherry, dried cherry, licorice and cedar, with herbal and smoky notes, light tannins and gentle acidity. Harmonious, in an austere style. Drink now through 2018.
