The Cerro Anon Reserva is a delicious cherry and spice driven example of red Rioja. This wine is mostly modern in style with some traditional tendencies including is American oak aging that give it a fragrant and irresistible coconut, vanilla, and dill aroma. A crowd pleaser for sure.
Cherry red with ruby highlights. Complex, fine aromas. Round and well balanced on the palate, as a result of its long period in the bottle.
90 Points – Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar:
Deep ruby. Ripe cherry, dark berries and vanilla on the perfumed nose. Smooth and accessible, offering sweet cherry-vanilla and coconut flavors and a hint of mocha. Fine-grained tannins come on late, adding shape to the long, smooth, appealingly sweet finish. Shows little of the tangy edge that I associate with so many wines from this vintage.
