Ontañón Tempranillo Blend Rioja Arteso 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The harmony of this wine is the result of a powerful aroma, fruity and spicy entry that is broad and balanced in the mouth. The youth is outlined in purple hues in color and fruity on the palate, making this a powerful mouthful.

Dark cherry chocolate notes. Black berry fruit with dark cherries too. Cocoa currents pretty big non delicate but well balanced wine.

Dark berry and chocolate aromas. A cherry flavor to boot. Decent but not a favorite of mine.

For an aged Reserva such as this one, the wine is rather straightforward with simple red and black berries draped across a backdrop of chocolate covered bing cherries. A lovely spicy, lengthy finish makes it memorable.

Rubin-rot und violett schimmernd. Vielschichtiges Bouquet mit leicht würziger Note, fruchtig und mineralisch. Aromen von reifen Früchten. Erinnert an Trüffel. Ausgewogener, samtiger Wein.

The 2004 Reserva is purple/black in color with a fragrant nose of pain grille, scorched earth, lavender, incense, and blackberry. Dense and concentrated on the palate, it has layers of fruit, succulent flavors, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Giv... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

This energetic red shows cranberry, licorice and cedar flavors carried across the palate by racy acidity, weaving spice, tobacco and leafy notes over light, firm tannins. Drink now through 2016. -T.M. Wine Spectator. A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2004 Bodegas Ontanon Rioja Reserva 750ml

Stares rot, leicht bräunlich-reif, ein "vino de guarda". Bukett: Vielgestaltet und reichhaltig, nimmt Duft von Himbeeren und Schockolade zu sich. Geschmack: gut gereift, reifes Obst mit einem gerösteten Geschmack im Hintergrund, langer Abgang.



Tasting Notes:

A very classic Rioja. A mixture of bramble, red-berried fruit and soft spices on the nose mixed in with hints of oak. The palate is full of fleshy ripe flavors, a firm slightly oaky middle with stylish length and excellent balance

The harmony of this wine is the result of a powerful aroma, fruity and spicy entry that is broad and balanced in the mouth. The youth is outlined in purple hues in color and fruity on the palate, making this a powerful mouthful.
