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 ViÃ±a Ardanza continues to evolve without losing its traditional qualities.
La Rioja Alta ViÃ±a Ardanza Reserva
"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"I would not be surprised if it eventually was labeled Reserva Especial, it is that good. Deep purple in colour, it exhibits an enticing bouquet of Asian spices, balsamic, tobacco, and black cherry. On the palate, it effortlessly combines power and elegance. It should easily evolve for 10-15 years and drink well for 20-30 years. Given the modest price at release, it seems foolish for lovers of traditional Rioja not to invest in a case. Drink from 2010-2040." 93+ points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
