2001 Bodegas Luberri Rioja Monje Amestoy Reserva

  • 2001 Bodegas Luberri Rioja Monje Amestoy Reserva – Spain, La Rioja, Rioja (5/16/2006)
    Almost blackish purple in color. The nose is earthy with cured cherry notes, fresh wood, mint, dill, and deep black fruits. Thick tannins, with a medium acidity. Depth is there, and but it needs some time and seems to be lacking a bit of purity. Flavors are of dark spices and dark fruits. 3.5/5
