“This deep red-violet-colored wine has a nose of cherry, hazelnut and orange peel. It is bright on entry, then gum-drying tannins settle in on the palate, bearing flavors of berry preserves, cranberry, cedar, mocha and juniper berry. The long finish offers a distinct note of almond toffee.” MIKE DESIMONE

Description

About the winery The winery was founded in 1973 on the outskirts of Logrono. Olarra is known locally as the ‘Cathedral of Rioja’ owing to the beauty and grandeur of its distinctive Y-shaped winery. Here, cutting-edge technologies merge with Rioja’s traditional winemaking methods, while the winery’s ageing hall houses an impressive 26,000 oak barrels. With several brands on the market, Cerro Anon is Olarra’s flagship label and the wines are classic in style.

About the wine “This gran reserva is a blend of 80% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo and 5% Garnacha. It is aged for two years in new oak. Sarah Jane Evans MW: A youthful blend, still showing energy after all these years: refreshing and well balanced, with a fine rasp of tannin. Simon Field MW: Seductive and wonderfully approachable for a beast that has been cloaked in wood for so long; very long and memorable. Pierre Mansour: Youthful, vibrant and gorgeously rich, yet with such well-judged tannins. Will benefit from more time in bottle..March/2019″
