The Olabarri winery is one of those great, under-the-radar estates in the Rioja. These guys pay great attention to their aging program and are producing some sexy tempranillos. It is no secret that wines from this region are best enjoyed with classic Spanish food. And this gran reserva is no exception. Penetrating and complex, dark earth and spice with a velvety mouthfeel that lingers. A mix of French and American oak adds spice and vanillin, and the cellar aging has smoothed out the tannic nature of young Rioja. Drink over the rest of this decade, and the next.
