"Compact and solid as stone on the nose, with leather, earth, tobacco, spice and botanical aromas accenting bold berry fruit. Superb balance and grip showcase black fruit, chocolate and fine oak flavors. Toasty and quite fine as a whole. Drink now through 2016." (12/11)

Product Description:

WINE:
"Tempranillo 80% and 20% Mazuelo and Graciano. Ageing 24 months in American and French oak vats and a minimum 36 months in the bottle. Ruby with brick-red glints, proper of a careful ageing. Incisive and penetrating complex aromas. It's big and balanced in the mouth, velvety and frank in the palate, showing its great evolution in the bottle." -Winery

WINERY:
"The original winery was founded in 1958 in Haro by Mr. Pablo Olabarri Bikandi. A great wine lover, in 1985 he jumped at the opportunity to acquire an old, derelict 19th-century winery at Calle Las Bodegas, 88. After rebuilding the winery, and due to the need for modern facilities to age and bottle high-quality Rioja wines, in 1989 he built the Haro winery, with a capacity for 4,000 casks and a hall for aging bottled wines with space for 800,000 bottles. Pablo Olabarri passed away in 1990, while the winery was in the process of consolidating its position in wine markets. His son, Luis Olabarri, took over as winery manager, a post he continues to hold today." -Winery
