    July 15, 2019 - Same impressions as my last bottles on 7/8/17 and 8/27/18. Very pleasing and good QPR at $14 in 2009.

    August 27, 2018 - Decanted 90 minutes before blind tasting, re-bottled for event. Was quickly consumed by participants. Impressions matched mine from 7/8/17.

    June 10, 2018 - 13.5% ABV

    Color: very dark purple to black
    Nose: intense deep complex aromas. Lots of dried dark fruit and berries. Some woody characteristics
    Body/flavor: full body; complex lush flavors; very fruit forward, but well-balanced. Touch of smoke. Some tannins
    Aftertaste: lingering finish.

    In my opinion, the wine still has time to age further. But you can enjoy now!

    (Bodegas Ondarre Rioja Reserva) A deep and rich hue here, an opaque core, and a dusty cherry-red rim. It looks quite youthful still, despite its five years. The nose kicks off with some exuberant fruits, with a layer of smoky oak edged with an attractive meaty element, then followed by elements of leather, tar, rosehips, cherries and tobacco. On the palate it is slightly fat and creamy but well underpinned by slightly charcoaly oak tannins. This is a well polished wine which has, apart from the grit of the tannins underneath, a quite seamless character, with delightful flavours of dark, intense, bitter raspberries and coffee grounds. A very appealing wine, and certainly this is very good value at this price.
