Ontañón

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Graciano 2005

Great example from the excellent 2005 harvest. A blend of 85% Tempranillo / 15% Graciano, this wine spent 36 months in oak and another 36 months in bottle before release. A deep ruby in the glass, it delivers lots of dark red fruit, with layers of spice, leather, vanilla, tobacco and earthiness. The maturity time of this Gran Reserva delivers a beautiful, smoothly balanced wine. Decanted for 1 hour, this will easily last another 10-15 years.

Baron de Ley

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2010

This wine just seems to get better. Classic Rioja in the glass. Dark cherry, smokey oak, vanilla and black pepper. Well balanced with a long finish. This should age well for another 5-7 years.

Bodegas Muriel

Reserva Vendimia Seleccionada Rioja Tempranillo 2008

Great value classic Rioja. At 8 years old this wine is a deep ruby in the glass with a hint of dried dark fruit on the nose. The palate delivers developing, yet rustic dark fruit, vanilla, leather with a whiff of light smoke and wood. Decanted for one hour, it was nicely balanced and complex enough to keep for another 5-7 years or more.

Baron de Ley

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2010

Delicious 2010 Baron De Ley Gran Reserva . Mainly Tempranillo (85%) with some Graciano, the grapes are from the small Cenicero vineyard located in Rioja Alta. Matured for 2 years in 50% French oak and 50% American oak, with a further 3 years in the bottle before release. On the palate it is full bodied, soft and smooth in a classic Rioja style. Dark fruit, tobacco, black pepper with mild balsamic notes. The acidity and tannins are well balanced and give a complex and long finish. Great wine at $29.
