So much more fruit than the 81. A muskiness about it but we don't think it's corked.

Viña monty quizás el más flojito de todos pero a muy buen nivel. Notas más ahumadas en nariz y quizás el más oxidado de los tres.

Lovely, classic Rioja wine. Great spice and ripe strawberry and intense fruit flavors. Intense nose, pallet and finish. A terrific food wine.

Fresher than the 82 but still not great. Crowd was split between the two but I definitely preferred this one.

Surprisingly fruit-forward for an gran reserva. Supple, elegant, velvety tannins. Beautiful.

Opens with a nose of cherries and cream and bright fruits on the pallet. After about an hour, the true Rioja character came out. Tabacco and leather came forward on the nose and pallet with a nice smooth tannin. Still fruity for a gran.
