Ontañón Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva 2004
Beautiful dark cherry cocoa nose. Great balanced palate some black tea leaves. Balanced acidity delicate sophisticated. Really nice. My fav in this Rioja tasting so far.
oak and spice, nicely balanced -- adding to my list of Fav Temps
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.
Berry fruit and dark chocolate complemented by an oak flavor.
Three and a half glasses

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

Complex aromas of oak, balsamic and coffee. On the palate there is an abundance of fruit, as well as flavours of vanilla and licorice. It is a smooth and balanced wine with a warm and toasty finish. Mot made every year, is it one to buy before it's gone!
