2005 - Vina Olabarri Gran Reserva
"This is almost exactly like the winery's excellent 2004 Gran Reserva, proof that Olabarri knows how to make this style of Tempranillo. This is smooth and concentrated, with a deep color and ripe plum, blackberry and tobacco aromas. Flavors of mossy berry, fresh prune, chocolate and vanilla come with light herbal accents. This is elegant, with aging potential. Drink now-2020." (06/13) - 92 Pts Wine Enthusiast
"Licorice, espresso, smoke and mineral notes frame a core of plum and leafy flavors in this savory red. Compact yet dense, with light, firm tannins and a slightly chewy finish. Drink now through 2020. 3,750 cases made. TM" (10/13) - 91 Pts Wine Spectator
"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. Tempranillo 80% and 20% Mazuelo and Graciano." - Winery
"Ageing 24 months in american and french oak vats and a minimum 36 months in the bottle." - 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
"The Rioja Alta area covers all the vast right bank of the Ebro River, from the Tiron valley to the Iregua valley. These lands provide unrivalled conditions for vine growing and wine making."
"Haro, known as "The Wine Capital", is located in this area. It is deservedly bestowed honour and prestige and it is here, in this traditional winemaking area in an incomparable setting, where our winery - Vina Olabarri - is located." - Winery
Following traditional artisanal winemaking methods, we make and age wines from this part of Rioja Alta, offering wines that express the full potential of the grapes and land where they are grown." - Winery
2009 - Pujanza Hado Rioja
"Vivid ruby. Primary cherry and dark berry aromas are brightened by Asian spices and smoky minerals. Firm and focused, with lively, spice-accented cherry and blackberry flavors, solid minerality and silky tannins. Very fresh and focused Rioja, with a spicy, refreshingly bitter finish." (10/11) - 90 Pts Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"The 2009 Pujanza Hado was sourced from Bodegas Pujanza's younger vines (20-35 years of age) and aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak. It gives up an alluring nose, particularly at this level, of fragrant spices, cedar, leather, lavender, black cherry, and blackberry. Surprisingly rich (likely as a result of the vintage), deep, and structured, this succulent Rioja is an outstanding value meant for drinking over the next 8-10 years." (06/11) - 90 Pts Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"This is a high-quality Rioja at a mid-level price, featuring admirable richness and depth of flavor, but also the bright freshness that marks Tempranillo from the cool climate in the Rioja Alavesa sub-district. Oak notes are mercifully restrained by Rioja standards, permitting the fresh fruit to express its red and dark cherry notes. Medium-bodied, with plenty of fine-grained tannin, this will improve for up to a decade, but can certainly be enjoyed now with food." (04/12) - 90 Pts Wine Review Online
"Produced from estate grown fruit from vines between 20 and 35 years old. The vineyards all lie above 600 meters in elevation and are composed of chalky clay. The grapes are hand harvested and see a 5 day pre-fermentation maceration. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in 15,000 L stainless steel tanks and undergoes 4 pump-overs per day. Following alcoholic fermentation the skins see a further 20 post fermentation maceration. The wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, half second fill and half third fill, prior to bottling." -Importer
"Bodegas y Vinedos Pujanza was established in 1998 by Carlos San Pedro, a fifth generation grape grower and third generation winemaker. In 2001, the winery introduced its first wine, Pujanza. Carlos San Pedro considers himself to be a vine-grower, conscious of the fact that his work has an aim which is the creation of great wines. This idea was the starting point for a young winery that wants to reflect this vitality in its wines. The winery is in La Guardia, Rioja Alavesa, a village well known for its wines. All of the wines are produced from single vineyards."
"Carlos' philosophy is to transmit to his wines all the character and personality of the soil/terroir. This philosophy hinges on careful tending of the vineyards from pruning to harvest as well as the unique characteristic of a higher iron content in the soils of the vineyards." -Importer
This wine was also rated 88 Points by the Wine Enthusiast and 86 Points by the Wine Spectator.
