I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

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
