2010 VINA OLABARRI GRAN RESERVA RIOJA SPAIN
Traditionally made Rioja, ages 24 months in American and French oak vats and a minimum 36 months in the bottle. This is perhaps the smallest of the fourteen bodegas in Haro. Vine age for the Gran Reserva is 45 yr +. Ruby with brick-red glints, proper of a careful ageing. The 2010 is showing perfect evolution in the bottle. Aromas of plum, leather, cocoa and savory spice lead to a dense and layered palate rich in blackberry, black currant, herbs de Provence and dark chocolate notes. The finish is earthy and lingering. Terrific food wine, and one of the great wine values mature, pedigreed wine.
About: Vina Olabarri is located in Haro, "The Wine Capital" of Spain, in Rioja Alta. The area covers all the vast right bank of the Ebro River, from the Tiron valley to the Iregua valley. These lands provide unrivalled conditions for vine growing and wine making.The original winery was founded in 1958 in Haro by Mr. Pablo Olabarri Bikandi. A great wine lover, in 1985 he jumped at the opportunity to acquire an old, derelict 19th-century winery at Calle Las Bodegas, 88. After rebuilding the winery, and due to the need for modern facilities to age and bottle high-quality Rioja wines, in 1989 he built the Haro winery.
Pablo Olabarri passed away in 1990, while the winery was in the process of consolidating its position in wine markets. His son, Luis Olabarri, took over as winery manager, a post he continues to hold today. (Winery)
