Bodegas Cerro Anon Rioja Gran Reserva 2011
It’s altogether a more fruit-forward, riper, fuller-bodied, high-octane Rioja.
That extra fruit drive does come at the slight – and it is slight – cost of complexity and subtlety: the tobacco/leather/coffee/toffee tones are just a little more muted, although there is also more to come.
This is a wine that’s probably going to be best in the next 4-5 years, but that’s always hard to judge. If anything, the 2011, I might argue, is perhaps how you might expect an exceptional Reserva to taste; it definitely has a lesser sense of "fruit fade" than is common with Gran Reservas.
