This wine shows a deep red colour with shades of ruby on the rim of the glass. To the nose, at the time of release, it revealed a delicate balance between ripe red berry aromas and those of spices and smokiness. Over time, bouquet has grown more complex, showing aromas of leather, coffee beans and raisins. Mouthfeel is as firm, elegant and smooth as one should expect from a Rioja Gran Reserva, with a surprisingly long and fresh finish.

DecanterFounded 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. This gran reserva is a blend of 80% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo and 5% Garnacha, 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.

Wine SpectatorThis supple red shows dried cherry, orange peel, tobacco and mineral flavors, supported by well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity. Elegant and balanced, fresh through the finish. Drink now through 2022.
