Medium-high cherry red robe, with orange tinted tones on the edge of the glass, clear and brilliant. Intense and complex to the nose. Wild berry aromas predominate, blended with hints of coconut, cinnamon, tobacco and leather. Full-bodied and well structured to the palate, with silky and enveloping tannins. A long finish acquired from its lengthy time in bottle, where its elegant bouquet gains in intensity. This Viña Ardanza continues to evolve without losing its traditional qualities.
"A brilliant red. Lively, oak-spiced raspberry and cherry scents are complemented by candied rose and vanilla, with a smoky mineral top note providing added lift. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering juicy red fruit, mocha and coconut flavours plus a suggestion of sweet chewing tobacco. In a graceful, approachable style, finishing with strong, thrust and silky, late-arriving tannins." 92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
"Layers of chocolate, brambles, fine oak, cedar and vanilla make up the palate. Wonderful old-fashioned Rioja that is a bit developed but is classic and classy and sings of freshness." 92 points, Decanter Magazine, August 2015
