I can't believe I haven't blogged about this wine yet!
The lovely Elizabeth first introduced me to the Montecillo Crianza Rioja 2003 from Spain. I am quickly learning that you can't go wrong with Spanish wine. This one is slightly spicy, quite dry, and tastes of ripe berries especially cherries and black currants. There are also slight hints of vanilla and cedar. At the LCBO, it's $14.75 a bottle. And from now until January 6, it's only $12.75. Needless to say, I'll be stocking up.
