Bodegas Orben Orben Rioja 2014
From a meticulous selection of microparcels of old vineyard in Rioja Alavesa between Villabuena and Laguardia it reappears with power, complexity and a very marked personality Orben.
James SucklingVery dense and tannic, but there's also plenty of fruit with mulberries on the nose. Is this pushing the envelope one step too far? Although the wine has powerful tannins, somehow it balances out and tastes fresh – an amazing feat. Better from 2018.
Wine SpectatorThis red shows depth and density, with black cherry and blackberry flavors supported by firm, well-integrated tannins and juicy acidity. Notes of smoke, licorice and mineral emerge on the finish. Harmonious. Drink now through 2028. 2,080 cases made.
