About

92

"Leather, spice, lemon peel and dried-fruit aromas are textbook for mature Rioja. An elegant yet common mouthfeel is medium bodied and racy, while flavors of dried berry fruits, vanilla, pepper and tobacco are familiar and well presented. A long finish holds onto its fruit, indicating this can age for another decade or so. -MS"

Product Description:

Have you ever wanted to try a $60 bottle of wine ... for $29.99?

If there was ever a time to buy a case of premium red wine ... at a deep discount ... it's today. While supplies last, take advantage of this huge 92 Point Rioja.

Last month, several of us from the Wine Library team (including Gary Vaynerchuk himself) had dinner to taste through a series of new wines we were thinking of bringing in. The star of the night ... was this stunning offer from Spain!

Boasting the pedigree of prized clay-limestone soils within La Rioja Alta, this offer on the 2005 Bentus floored us for its power and class. Considered by the winery to be their reserve-level bottling, or ‘vendemia seleccionada’, the 2005 Bentus is a stunner that will impress!

Three big reasons why you should jump on this while it lasts:

The price — The Wine Enthusiast lists a price of $60. Our sale price per bottle is $29.99.

The Score — Roger Voss of the Wine Enthusiast was floored by this pristinely-aged Rioja, giving it 92 points and raving about this release. He remarked, “Leather, spice, lemon peel and dried-fruit aromas are textbook for mature Rioja…flavors of dried berry fruits, vanilla, pepper and tobacco are familiar and well presented. A long finish holds onto its fruit, indicating this can age for another decade or so.”

It's ready to drink now — This parcel of the 2005 Bentus comes directly from the winery, boasting mint cellaring conditions since bottling and already drinking beautifully right now! Even better, the 2005 Rioja vintage was outstanding, hailed by many in the trade to be a classic, which explains why today’s wine is showing so incredibly today.

Don't miss out on this one... as this offer will not last!!
