Bodegas Obalo Crianza Rioja 2014 (750ml)

"Bright ruby. Highly perfumed red berry and candied rose scents are complemented by suggestions of potpourri and vanilla bean. Sweet, supple and broad, offering intense raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and lift on the finish, which is framed by harmonious tannins. This wine spent a year in new French oak but I don't find it to be overtly woody." 91pts Vinous

Bodegas Obalo sits on a vantage point near Ábalos, and from this point the building shows off the sleek elegance of its structure and form. The winery is located in a small part of Rioja called The Sonsierra. With its hilly terrain (550 mts / above see level), there are numerous small vineyards that are often owned by single families that have carved out terraces from the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria right down to the left bank of the river Ebro.

In the settings surrounding Bodegas Obalo there are small plots of vineyards, sometimes hidden.

The clay-limestone composition of the soils helps to alleviate the effect of the summer rains on the grapes, specifically allowing the grapes to maintain their size. These soils grant the grapes a delicate aroma and smoothness, despite posing challenges in terms of vineyard management.

At the same time there are poor in organic matter and nutrients suitable for growing vines. Here, grapes are selected with patience.
