2015 Bodegas Ontanon Rioja Reserva
Blend: 95% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano
Tsating Notes: Rich aromas of blackberry and baking spice lead into complex flavors of fruit compote, toasted oak, and minerality. The elegance on the palate is the result of 24 months of oak aging. This aging provides balanced acidity, astringency, and aromatic power, which contributes to a long and elegant finish.
