Tobacco and iron notes give this full-bodied red a sanguine character, but plum, rhubarb, licorice and orange marmalade flavors add depth and balance. Maturing, but still generous and lively. Drink now through 2020.
Leathery cherry and plum aromas offer a hint of tobacco as well as a burnt, roasted note. This is healthy in feel, with lively, snappy acidity. Flavors of herbs, vanilla, tomato, tobacco and red currant finish wiry and high-toned, with moderate tartness and plenty of length. Drink through 2023.
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 the added elegance, texture, and purity that only older vines from top notch vineyard sites can provide. The Gran Reserva is a blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano. It is aged for 24 months in a mix of French and American oak. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)
