Bodegas Olarra is located on the outskirts of Logroño, right in the heart of the DOC Rioja and within the prestigious Rioja Alta sub-district. Tempranillo dominates this complex and balanced red. With aromas of dusty dark cherry, blood orange, and cedar, it has great structure, a medium body, soft mouthfeel and a lingering, satisfying finish.

Wine Spectator A lively, compact red, with sinewy tannins well-knit to sleek acidity and flavors of crushed black raspberry and blackberry, minerally iron and pomegranate   puree. Medium-bodied, with a chewy, brambly finish. Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha and Mazuelo. Drink now  — Alison NapjusWine Enthusiast 92 points Deep ruby in the glass, this wine has a bouquet of black currant and blackberry with a touch of green bell pepper. Flavors of cassis, Chambord, bittersweet chocolate, clove and roasted fennel bulb are set into a web of velvet tannins that dissolve into a drawn out finish with note of orange zest.

Bodegas Olarra Cerron Anon Rioja Reserva 2017 is one of my favorite Reservas available in the market now. A text book blend of Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano aged 3 years in oak and bottle before it is release to the market.
This Reserva opens up with captivating nose of Plums, Blueberries and toasted coconuts. Medium bodied with lively notes of dried herbs and cigar box. Lovely finish!
Pair with a Paella de Cordero.
