Tasting Notes

Ontañon is an amazing bodega, located just outside of Logroño, but sourcing fruit from their own vineyards in Rioja Baja. These are high elevation, fairly isolated, wild vineyards, many of which are gently sloping and on poor, stony soils. The wines here show the richness and generosity of fruit for which Tempranillo and Garnacha based Rioja Baja wines are known, but with an added elegance, texture and purity which only older vines from top notch vineyard sites can provide.

    A lovely Reserva wine, aged beautifully, and from a great vintage: what more could you want? Bodegas Ontanon's 2005 Reserva is drinking beautifully right now. The very soft, fine tannins are completely integrated, and a persistent note of aged leather and wild mushroom complements the rich black cherry aromatics. On the palate the wine has continued weight, with a game-y umami note coming into play and soft, sweet spice drawing out the long finish.
