Welcome to the weekend and I have opened tonight the 2005 Ontañón Rioja Reserva, 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano.

On the nose there is cherry, plum, raspberry, licorice, spice, vanilla, rich oak and an eartiness.

On the palate there is good red fruit, cherry, raspberry, strawberry, plum, a vegital/herbal thing going on, vanilla and toasty oak.

The wine is medium full bodied, well balanced with medium acidity and medium smooth tannins that progress into a medium to long finish. Let's all have a great weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Oak is not well integrated, but the wine is fine.

Really fruit forward. I was hoping for more baked character.

Excellent! These wines are all about fruit and tannin balance supported by great acidity. @prwinenews #theriojaweek
