Tasting Notes from the Curator

Bodegas Olarra Cerro Añon Reserva Rioja presents a complex aromatic profile that speaks to its meticulous aging process and the unique terroir of Rioja Alta. The initial bouquet unveils lush blackcurrant, sweet and earthy blackberries, and the subtle tartness of dusty dark cherry. An undercurrent of fresh blood orange adds a tantalizing citrus note, alongside ripe red fruits like cherries and strawberries that lend an inviting sweetness. Plums and blueberries contribute richness and juiciness, enriching the aromatic landscape. On a secondary level, the wine exudes fresh, herbaceous green bell pepper, woody and slightly spicy cedar, and the rich, earthy scent of leather. Spices like clove and possibly cinnamon evoke warmth, complemented by the creamy sweetness of vanilla from American oak. Added layers of complexity arise from dried dill, cocoa, an earthy mustiness, smoky tobacco, and the deep roasted aromas of coffee. These nuances create a multi-dimensional aromatic profile unparalleled in its category.

The flavor profile, mirroring the aromatic complexity, includes deep cassis, sweet Chambord, and bittersweet chocolate, offering a rich, slightly bitter sweetness. Clove and roasted fennel add warmth and a slight anise-like sweetness, while orange zest injects a fresh, slightly bitter citrus element. Dark berries such as blackberries and blueberries enhance the sweet yet slightly tart dimension. Oak’s woody, slightly spicy character, the earthy flavors, and the inviting red berry fruit contribute to the wine’s effortless balance. The texture is profoundly smooth, characterized by medium body, soft mouthfeel, and velvety polished tannins. The finish is drawn-out and lingering, combining flavors and textures in a harmonious, stylish package. The result is a distinguished wine that not only reflects meticulous winemaking but also the rich, diverse terroir of Rioja Alta.

Pairings & Suggestions

To fully enjoy the richness of Bodegas Olarra Cerro Añon Reserva Rioja, consider pairing it with dishes that echo its depth and complexity.

  • Roasted and grilled meats: The balanced tannins and flavors of cassis and chocolate pair wonderfully with beef roasts, rib-eye steaks, and sausages.
  • Lamb: Whether it is a rack of lamb or lamb skewers, the wine’s notes of blackberry and green bell pepper harmonize beautifully with the meat’s richness.
  • Game: Venison and duck breast with Port sauce are elevated by Rioja’s dark berry and oak flavors, while wild boar dishes align perfectly with its leather and tobacco notes.
  • Aged cheeses: Aged cheddar, Manchego, and blue cheeses bring out the bittersweet chocolate and spicy clove flavors in the wine, enhancing both elements.
  • Hearty stews and BBQ dishes: Beef and lamb stews, along with BBQ ribs and pulled pork, find their match in the wine’s fruit and spice notes, offering a compelling culinary experience.

For optimal enjoyment, decant the wine for 30 minutes and serve at 16-18°C (60-64°F) to enhance its rich flavors and aromas.

The Architectural Wonder of Rioja: The Hexagonal Domes

Bodegas Olarra, often referred to as the ‘Cathedral of Rioja,’ stands as an architectural marvel in the heart of Rioja Alta. The winery, designed by the visionary architect Juan Antonio Ridruejo, features an iconic roof comprising 111 hexagonal domes. This unique design serves both aesthetic and functional purposes. The domes provide natural insulation, maintaining a stable temperature vital for the meticulous aging process of wines. This innovative feature reflects Bodegas Olarra’s pioneering spirit, blending traditional winemaking techniques with modern advancements.

Beyond their practical benefits, these hexagonal domes have become a symbol of Olarra’s identity, attracting wine enthusiasts and architecture aficionados alike.
