Ontanon Rioja 2011

Member Review by Kristin Watts:

Though a bit corked, I still got some lovely tasting notes from this! Beyond that hint of wet newspaper there is a woodsy nose with a bit of spiciness wrapped within a complex yet leveled palate. Medium finish with dark berries that linger just long enough.
