Winemaker Notes

This potent and structured wine has been subtly rounded by having rested gently in oak for 12 months. The oak is perfectly integrated in this wine that maintains the fruity aromas typically associated with Tempranillo and in this line is faithful to its Riojan essence.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 91

Deep, shimmering ruby. Smoke-and spice-tinged raspberry and cherry aromas are accompanied by a suave floral overtone. Fleshy and energetic on the palate, showing very good heft to the red fruit preserve, vanilla and spice cake flavors. Finishes long, smooth and seamless, with even tannin's lending gentle grip.

Bodegas Obalo Winery Image
This young winery has only put a few of its vintages on the market. It is located in the village of Ábalos, which forms part of the municipality of Sonsierra in La Rioja. This region divides, like an arrowhead, what is known as the Alavese Rioja. Here the vineyards can take advantage of the protection of the natural barrier posed by the Sierra Cantabria, which is a wall that shields against the cold and humid north winds. From the winery, which has the necessary technology to make quality wines, one can see a landscape of soft undulations that carry down to the banks of the River Ebro, with a multitude of small estates dispersed amongst the hills and mounds, where the vine is forced to offer the best it can of itself.

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
