2009 Montebuena Rioja

Community Tasting Note


Friday, October 4, 2013 - Last bottle. Thank God! R Parker can suck it for giving that POS a 90 pt rating. Mmoss and I unfortunately took the bait and bought way too much of this horse bleep wine. Thought, just for 2 seconds, it might have finally got somewhere as it opened with fruit I had never experienced with this wine. Then it went off a cliff like Chevy Chase's career in the early 90's. Sour like it had gone bad. And quick. Had bottles with different labels and neck wraps. I think either Parker got paid or they turned everything they could into '09 Montebuena to try and cash in. This shit sucks. Sorry. I held off on the language as long as I could. I used to buy a lot of mid range Rioja's but now I am scarred. Yes, scarred, not scared.
