Bodegas Olarra Añares Reserva 2010
Cherry, tea, tobacco and spice flavors mingle in this maturing red. The tannins are softening but still have some grip, while orange peel acidity keeps this focused through the pretty floral finish. Drink now through 2022.
Dark ruby. Cherry, dark berries and a touch of dill on the nose. Lithe and focused on the palate, offering slow-to-unfold bitter cherry and blackberry flavors and a peppery accent. Dusty tannins firm the finish, which features an echo of vanilla and subtle florality.
The nose of the 2010 Añares Reserva shows more notes of oak, smoke and incense with ripe black fruit with a leather, animal hint. The palate is quite light with some surprising peachy flavors that are slightly artificial but pleasant.
