 Wine Advocate 91 points (Aug 2012)
The 2001 Gran Reserva is a blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano that is raised for 36 months in a combination of American and French oak. It has a traditional, dusty, sandalwood-scented bouquet, while the palate has freshness and vitality lent by the acidity. Fresh dark cherry, boysenberry and wild strawberry fruits combine well on the silky smooth finish that urges you to take another sip. Drink now-2020.”,,,

Wine maker notes
The Ontanon Gran Reserva is composed of Tempranillo and a small amount of Graciano, a grape that is indigenous to Rioja and according to tradition “gives thanks to the Tempranillo grape. Gran Reserva wines are produced only in vintages of the utmost quality. At harvest the winemarker carefully selects the very best fruit that comes from our oldest vines. Gran Reservas must spend a total of five years in the winery (three in barrel and two in bottle) prior to release, and this aging lends a quality of subtle spice and integrated components of tobacco and dried fruit.
