Senorio De Bocos

Bodega Otazu

Premium Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

Navarre. A region in northern Spain bordering Basque, La Rioja and Aragon.  It’s a place I’ve always wanted to visit.  This wine brings me there.  Let me tell you about the 2010 Otazu Premium Cuvee Senorio de Otazu.  I want to break it down quickly and then opine on the wine specifically. 
VISUAL: Clear, ruby on the edges fading to dark twilight deeper in.
NOSE: Slight cherry apple without O2, after a few swirls it opens up to sweet strawberry and banana scent.  Very nice, not overpowering or too fruit forward.
PALATE: There’s oak in there, but only slight. Chocolate, barbecue, cherry, pistachio (barely). This is a wine that is sleek and sexy without being too obvious.  It’s that girl at the beach who has no idea how beautiful she is, and just wants to throw the frisbee. The wine is NOT a tease, it’s just sweet, beautiful and very cool.
FINISH: No acidity, smooth finish with just a hint of tannins. It finishes without excessive echo.
AND NOW LET ME OPINE: I love this wine. It’s a perfect example of a quality Spanish wine: 50% Can Sauv, 30% Tempranillo,   20% Merlot. It’s a fantastic wine that I could see enjoying with a spicy curry, or even just on it’s own.  Grab a bottle of this, a good frisbee disc and head out to the nearest beach for a game of Ultimate Frisbee. You will not be disappointed. My Parker Rating for this is a solid 90 points.

Single Vineyard Arabako Txakolina White Blend

Perfect summer white when you're looking to switch from the rosé. A touch yeasty, in a good way, effervescent, bright, summer perfection. Long pour and good company recommended. Cheers. — 5 years ago

Navarra Garnacha 2015

The first night I pulled it open, it was completely unremarkable. I was using it for a coq au vin. Purchased at GO for $5.99. After leaving it open on the counter for another day, it developed lots of plummy, raisiny and fruity notes. Nice color. Great for the frugal and patient. — 2 years ago
