Natalie's Score: 87/100

Old World finesse with mature aromas of leather and cigar box. Some dried herbs and pleasantly bitter cherries.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This pertains to the 2006 Montecillo Crianza. This integrated, medium to full bodied wine Rioja has aromas of cherry, oak and vanilla. It has refined tannins and a medium to long finish. It is good to drink now or can improve with 3-5 years in the cellar. My impression: BEAUTIFUL. Tasted Jan/10.
Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Crushed berries and wood on the nose continue on the palate, with a light hint of vanilla on the finish. I'm 87 on this wine. (ottawwinejournal.com)
