Bodegas Olarra Anares Gran Reserva 2015
Deep garnet in the glass, this wine has a bouquet of cassis, butterscotch and lavender. It feels sturdy on the palate, offering flavors of raspberry, pomegranate, tobacco leaf and chocolate covered espresso bean set into a frame of tight tannins. The finish is marked with notes of herbes de Provence.
Dark red. Aromas of cherry pit, red currant, succulent herbs and cracked pepper, with a subtle vanilla nuance in the background. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering spice-accented red fruit flavors that tighten up with aeration. Clings nicely on a long, nervy finish firmed by subtly chewy tannins.
Vivid flavors of orange peel, cedar, tobacco and herb layer together on this structured red, with hints of anise and loamy earth filling in on the finish. Drink now through 2026.
