Natalie's Score: 90/100

A full-bodied and intriguing wine with black fruit, smoke and savoury, meaty notes. The appellation for this wine is DOCA. Good acidity on the palate for hearty meat dishes. Finishes with dry tobacco. Heavenly Hamburger Wine

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This 2004 Ontañón Reserva, composed of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano that was aged in American Oak for 24 months, has intense aromas of clove, fennel, cigar box, tobacco leaf cherry and sour cherry. It is a light to medium bodied, extra-dry, aged wine; with refreshing acidity, refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a long to extra-long, spicy finish. Though food friendly, enjoy this beauty on its own; drink now – 2017/18 (fruit is drying out). My impression: BEAUTIFUL to DIVINE, 92+ pts – recommended for its quality and value. Tasted Feb/14.
