Tasting note: “The 2019 Rioja “Crianza” from Viña Otano is crafted from a cépages of ninety percent tempranillo and ten percent mazuelo. The wine delivers a fine young nose of red and black raspberries, Rioja spice tones, cigar wrapper, a fine base of soil and a rather generous serving of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a good core, tangy acids, moderate tannins and a long, well-balanced and fairly oaky finish. This wine only spent twelve months in cask, but I would bet a fair percentage were new barrels. This is a good bottle that is approachable today, but will be even better a couple of years down the road, when the oak influence relaxes a bit more. Fine value. 2023-2040.” View from the Cellar; John Gilman – Issue #105 May/June 2023.

Pairing suggestion: Hard cheeses, red meats, jamon
