Winemaker Notes

Closed, medium-high intensity, cherry-red with a garnet-red rim. Very intense nose, with dominating notes of ripe forest berries —blackberries, wild strawberries— integrated into a background of sweet liquorice and cocoa. Well-balanced in the mouth, with good structure. Well-assembled, with fine tannins leaving a fruity aftertaste over creamy oak notes. The perfect match to all kinds of stews and casseroles, meats with spicy sauces, medium-aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Toast and cocoa notes frame ripe plum and black cherry flavors in this plump red, which has a polished texture supported by well-integrated tannins, with more breadth than is typical of the vintage. Drink now through 2018. 8,330 cases made.

Torre de Ona by La Rioja Alta, Spain
Image of winery

Torre de Ona was forged in 1995, when La Rioja Alta, S.A. led this exciting project with the aim of making an excellent quality wine incorporating all the personality of the best vine plots in the prestigious Rioja Alavesa area. A unique location that they were convinced provided clear potential for making a great modern wine, capable of transmitting – as with the great "chateaux" – the exclusive characteristics of a privileged estate.

Since then, and always focused on the continual improvement in the wine, Torre de Ona has made important changes to the vineyards and winery. But it has been in recent years, more specifically since 2005, that they started to pay very special attention to the different plots that make up the estate, and the separate production and maturing of each sub-plot, evaluating the soil and determining where the best quality grapes grow, only then collecting harvests that meet the quality standards for an important international wine. This is how they made the Torre de Ona, Finca San Martín and Club de Cosecheros (Harvester's Club) wines.

They have taken a big step forward. But they will not rest there. They constantly strive for excellence and are convinced that for the Torre de Ona winery, the best has yet to come.

Image for Rioja content section

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.
