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!

2002 Bodegas Luberri Rioja Monje Amestoy Reserva

  • 2002 Bodegas Luberri Rioja Monje Amestoy Reserva – Spain, La Rioja, Rioja (5/16/2006)
    Only one year in bottle.
    Dark in color with a closed nose, that slowly reveals smoke, minerals, earth, and perserved fruits. Well layered and I wish I could have some time to see this wine develop. Fine rich tannins, with a high acidty and full of fruit on the palate. Big cherry flavors densely pack with spice and earth. Fun wine, I look forward to it’s release.
