93 View from the Cellar The 2019 Rioja “Maturana Tinta” from Viña Otano is made entirely from the rare grape of Maturana Tinta, with these old vines having been planted all the way back in 1947. The vineyard is planted on stony soils of clay and chalk, the grapes hand-harvested and the wine is aged in used French oak barrels for eighteen months prior to bottling. After the mise, the wine is given an additional two years of bottle aging in the cellar before being released. The 2019 version comes inat an even fourteen percent octane and delivers a deep and complex bouquet of cassis, dark berries, tobacco leaf, Rioja spice tones, a fine base of soil, espresso, cigar smoke and a deft framing of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and ripely tannic, with a superb core of fruit, good soil undertow and grip, lovely balance and a long, focused and nascently complex finish. With a bit of bottle age, this is going to be an excellent wine. 2032-2065.
