Bodegas Olarra Cerro Añon Reserva 2012
Wine EnthusiastThis Rioja reserva hits all the standard checkpoints with aplomb. Earthy loamy mossy aromas of plum and berry fruits feature a hint of tobacco and vanilla. In the mouth, this is full, with round but serious tannins. Tea, wild herb, black plum and berry flavors finish with savory soupy notes and prodding tannins. Drink through 2022.
Wine SpectatorThis savory red is energetic and expressive, with licorice, floral and smoky notes framing a core of cherry and mineral flavors. Light tannins and brisk acidity support the lean, lively structure. Drink now through 2022. 20,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cerró Añón Crianza is a straightforward crianza mixing spicy oak and simple berry fruit. The palate is rather light, easy to drink.
