ONE OF TWENTY "BEST SELLERS" FROM FAMED VIRGINIA IMPORTER FRAN KYSELA IMPORT BOOK!! OH BY THE WAY DID I MENTION A "BEST BUY" HERE AT THE LAWC AS WELL?

SUPER UNDER-PRICED! DRINKS GREAT NOW!


"This lean red shows fresh and dried cherry, herbal and forest floor flavors, with light, firm tannins and orange peel acidity. A focused, traditional style. Drink now through 2024. 11,800 cases made, 11,800 cases imported. -TM" (WS)

"Plum and berry aromas are good in a standard and familiar way. A full-fruit palate is a bit grinding, while berry, black plum, cassis and prune flavors finish steady but with clamping tannins. Michael Schachner" (WE)

Winery 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.
