Mayor de Ondarre Reserve 2006

Member Review by InWineTruth:

Dark ruby bright, ripe aromas of dark tree fruits and candied spice; robust flavor notes of black cherry, red currants and spicy vanilla ingrained in fine tannins over a long, elegant finish.

Rioja Reservas—aged by law for a minimum of one year in oak barrels and another 2 years in bottle—are rendered silky-smooth from this extended aging period. Characteristically earthy, spicy and leathery on the nose, Ondarre’s Rioja also boasts lashings of sweet red licorice and cherry drops. Composition: Tempranillo 75%, Garnacha 10%, and Mazuelo 15% Preperation: Separate fermentation of each variety. Controlled temperature of fermentation between 28-30 day 28-30 degrees centigrade Maceration 16-18 days. Ageing: 16 months in American and French oak casks of the Bordeaux type, with racking performed four times. Description: Intense cherry red colour. Aromas of oak ageing with hints of spices. Strong attack, good backbone, full-flavoured, with well integrated long-lasting tannins. Long and persistent finish.

This firm compact red delivers black cherry and cassis fruit with leafy licorice and mineral accents and a modest oak component. There's firm well integrated tannins and a fresh leafy finish. Not showy but has depth and purity. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 8000 cases made. -TM
