Medium, cherry red, clear and bright, with orange tones on the edge of the glass. An intense bouquet, reminiscent of ripe berries and citric fruit; against a mentholated background, with hints of cinnamon, vanilla, caramel, and toffee. Medium-bodied and round to the palate, with sweet tannins blending with the slight acidity typical of the brand. Long aftertaste, with citric and balsamic aromas and flavours that ensure an excellent bouquet after time in the bottle.
La Rioja Alta Viña Arana Reserva
"The 2005 Vina Arana Reserva has a fresh bouquet of orange blossom, quince, violets and dark cherries. The palate is succulent on the entry with vivacious maraschino cherry, red currant and blood orange. It displays a very fine build and a silky smooth texture that segues to a poised, mint-tinged, bright and animated finish. Drink now-2020." 93 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
