Reviews and Ratings
|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A full bodied Spanish wine from the Navarra region, combining Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot grapes.
Aromas of black pepper, leather, blackberries and anise, that carry through a peppery finish, velvety tannins, and a long dark fruit finish.
Wonderful with charcuterie boards.
Tasted March 2018.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This Spanish red is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo. Deep ruby and full-bodied, with notes of blackberry, vanilla, dark chocolate and cherry. The Tempranillo contributes to the elegance of this wine.
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Lots of briar fruit, crushed rocks, fresh herb, nuts, and all-spice. Delicious, with tertiary notes coming through very well in this nearly 10 year old wine. 91 points.
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
I like the round fruits on the palate (but not over sweet), med+ structure, and dry finish. Good spanish wine that can pair with more gamey meats
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Tangy and spicy, big grippy tannins, juicy red fruit, black cherry, black pepper. Mouthwatering acidity. Well balanced. Pairs well with braised red meats. Tasted 2009 vintage decanted 2h in March 2018. 90 points Good value.
|Sharon Prionas rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of cherry and green pepper on the nose. Flavours of cassis, dark fruit with tannins. Great full-bodied wine that after almost ten years, tastes great!
Great with tapas, chacuterie, or cheese board.

|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
For a wine that is almost 10 years old there is still plenty of life left in this Cabernet, Tempranillo and Merlot blend from Navarra, Spain. Aromas of smoke, leather and dark fruit. Flavours of blackberry with tannins that have started to smooth out. I see this wine as being in its prime next year! Pair with meats from the bbq and roast beef. Tasted March 11, 2018.
|Bodega Otazu sits on a 12th-Century estate. The property includes an art gallery and a winery museum as well as a remarkable French-style cellar that dates from 1840. Otazu Reserva Clásico (2009) is a robust red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Merlot. Look for ripe dark fruit, earthy spices and vanilla on this Spanish beauty from Navarra. - Community Wine Reviews|
