Baron de Oña Reserva 1999

Member Review by oolah:

Seductive nose of rose petals, cigar box and leather. Opened up a bit quietly -- not much fruit at first, but after a few minutes in the glass, the the red fruit came forward and settled in nicely with the flowers and a well-balanced acidity. Medium-bodied. A good food wine.

Finally, Leandro Vázquez decided to leave the business, a more than tempting legacy for those seeking new horizons in La Rioja. This situation coincided with the desire of La Rioja Alta, S.A. to complement its traditional style with a new wine, totally independent and different from the Haro sanctuary. Some changes were made after the purchase was completed in January, 1995, focused more on improving and enhancing what was already there than on changing the château philosophy and the modern and powerful wine initially produced by Barón de Oña, S.A.
