Cerró Añón Gran Reserva 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

To the eye, it has a deep, dark colour with ruby glints around the rim. Its nose surprises you with its delicate balance of aromas. The wine opens up with ripe red berry aromas wich mingle with smoky nuances and hints of spices. Over the months, the aromas have become more and more complex, with reminders of its evolution coming through in the guise of leather and tobacco, amog others. On the palate it is full and round, thanks to its long period in the bottle. Confirming all the best expectations, it lingers on after swallowing the wine, with a soft, smooth sensation in which elegance is the most marked impression.

92 Points: Wine Advocate # 195 Jun 2011 The 2004 Cerro Anon Gran Reserva is made up of 80% Tempranillo with the balance Garnacha, Mazuelo, and Graciano with malolactic in new oak with lees stirring followed by a total of 2 years of aging in new oak. It offers greater complexity than the Reserva, a nicely proportioned figure, layered fruit, and considerable elegance. It can be cellared for 4-5 years or approached now. It over-delivers in a very big way. Bodegas Olarra was founded in 1973 and is located in the heart of the Denominacion de Origen Calificada Rioja on the outskirts of Logrono.

91 Points: Best New Wines from Spain SEP/OCT 2011 By Josh Raynolds 2004 Bodegas Olarra Cerro Anon Rioja Gran Reserva (80% tempranillo, with mazuelo, graciano and garnacha): Dark ruby. Assertive aromas of cherry-vanilla, spices and rose, with a hint of licorice in the background. Lush and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, with very good clarity to its red fruit and floral flavors. Shows no rough edges and finishes with impressive energy and length. This wine's vivacity and depth reminded me a lot of a wine from the 2005 vintage.

Unmissverständlich Rioja der seriösen, modernen Machart. Die Herkunft ist eindeutig: klare, filigrane Fruchtstruktur, typische Aromatik und dazu gesellt sich ein samtiger Körper. Im Bouquet offenbart sich ein Mix von reifen Fruchtaromen (Kirschen, Zwetschgen, Waldbeeren), aber auch Minze und Anis, sowie feine Düfte von Blumen und Blüten. Dass sich Tradition mit Moderne vereinen lässt, zeigen der Sinneseindruck im Gaumen und das lange anhaltende und vielschichtige Finale: Leckere Eindrücke vereinen sich mit der fruchtigen Struktur, reife Gerbstoffe mit der klassischen Strenge und der Feinheit.
