2012 Torre de Ona Reserva (750ml)

Tempranillo from Rioja, Spain


Last time I caught the 2012 Reserva just before it was bottled, so it was good to see the finished version with some time in bottle, and glad to see that it made it to the top of my range last year, with its modern but not excessive profile. Even though the tannins are fine, it could benefit from some more time in bottle and can stand up to hearty food. Just as a reminder, the wine was not produced in 2011 or 2013. 100,000 bottles.

92 points, Wine Advocate (Issue # 226 - Aug 2016)

Dark chocolate, tar and licorice notes lend a refreshing bitter edge to the ripe plum and currant fruit in this dense red. Structured but not heavy, with well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity supporting the smooth texture. Drink now through 2025. 8,000 cases made.
