Tender and expressive, this red is maturing nicely, with cedar and tar notes joining black cherry, licorice and coffee flavors. There's a lively texture, with light, firm tannins and slightly balsamic acidity. Drink now through 2014. 9,000 cases made.
The 2005 Cerro Anon Gran Reserva is the same blend as the Reserva. The wine is racked into new casks for malolactic fermentation and lees aging for two months with occasional stirring. It is then racked into new oak for six months. It has a lovely ripe bouquet of dark cherries, blood orange and leather that carries the oak well, offering touches of dark chocolate with time. The palate is harmonious on the entry with fine tannins and clean, precise fruit. This is a Rioja that is in synch with the new oak, the finish smooth and sensual if missing a little personality. Drink now-2017.
