This is playing coy right now with the nose alternating between being a bit dumb and effusively pouring forth herb-, earth- and ash-accented black fruits wrapped in well measured oak. Super polished on entry, this has a lovely earthy and lightly leathery tinge to the early cherry fruit of the palate. The wine gains light herb and spice notes on the mid-palate. Invisible tannins offer sufficient support to allow this to fill the mouth yet the zesty acidity keeps it lively and fresh. The fruit turns redder in the mouth with hints of red apple peels and strawberries on the back end that come with sandy soil tones and a hint of minerality. The finish is classic Rioja: cherry and vanilla, bright with a light astringency, and long but not heavy. This is rather refined Rioja. 91pts

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.

90% Tempranillo 10% Granacha Deep ruby red with a light purple quality. Spicy nose with vanilla, milk chocolate and a strange smoke aroma I can't quite place. Med boy to light with a strong acidity and lit tannins. Bright fruit framed by oak with out oak overpowering it. Tannins are in the background with the acid showing upfront and proving to be great with food. C5a12t15o6= 88 [88]

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.

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.

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
