Garcia de Olano 2005 Tempranillo Mauleon Reserva - Spain

The 2005 Mauleon Reserva is ruby red in color with a full bouquet of ripe fruit aromas with touches of exquisite vanilla, nut, cinnamon, and licorice undertones. On the palate, the wine is well-balanced, smooth, and nicely structured with luscious, full flavors reminiscent of its aromas. Since this wine is classified as Reserva, it is aged longer by law (18 months in oak and 36 months in bottle) to offer an earthier, smoother expression. A classic example of Rioja's famed rustic varietal - Enjoy! [+]
