Ratings and awards
This not an ultra-traditional Rioja. It is a more fruit-driven style, without straying into the high-expression power-wine territory. It has absolutely beautiful balance, which can quite often be found in the wines of the village of Abalos. A lovely subtle balance of fruit and oak with balsamic notes as well. It will improve.
Obsolet Reserva 2015
Complex wine which has to be opened way ahead of drinking. Keeping the wine one or two more years in the bottle before drinking would be an advantage.
Der Obalo Reserva ist ein sensationeller Wein. Ob zum Genuss am Abend vor dem Kamin oder zu einem schönen Abendessen, er passt einfach immer!
