Previous day's wine note
|Bodegas Montecillo 1995 Rioja Reserva ($18.99)|
Clear, dark ruby, with rich blackberry jam and aromatic vanilla scents. Bright fruit and spicy oak make a mouth-filling flavor, full and tart; a load of simple fruit surrounded by a forest of sweet oak. U.S. importer: W. J. Deutsch & Sons Ltd., Harrison, N.Y. (Nov. 5, 2000)
FOOD MATCH: A fair match, if a little "red," for chicken and pancetta in a light sauce over pasta.
Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We are now publishing Wine Lovers' Page wine reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the Wine Lovers' Page name and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
Have you tasted this wine?
E-mail me your tasting notes, and I'll consider adding them to this page.
