Steal of the Week:
Steal Price: $15.00
One of our longest standing and favorite suppliers of Spanish wines, Classic Wines, was able to set aside for us a few cases of 2009Ondarre Rioja Reserva, a premier wine from Bodegas Olarra. Though we received far less than we’d hoped for, now is not the time for lament – on the contrary, it is the perfect time to enjoy this well-cellared example of Rioja’s magic.
A quartet of 90% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha, 5% Mazuelo and Graciano, aged for sixteen months in American and French oaks. Rich, round, with notes of dark cherry, saddle leather, cedar and finishing vanilla. Full of spice, with a zest of harmonic warmth from bottle age, it is perfectly mature Rioja!
The 2009 Ondarre Reserva is a steal among steals, and you can buy it for a song, but the song will end abruptly when this wine is sold out. ¡Salud!
