La Rioja Alta Viña Ardanza Reserva 2009
|Brand||La Rioja Alta|
James SucklingVery fresh and vivid 2009 with berries, dark spice and hints of walnuts. Full-bodied, reserved and so held back and muscular, but you don't feel the tannins and the strength. A great wine. Give it two or three years.
Wine SpectatorA plush texture carries cherry, strawberry, vanilla, tea and spice flavors in this traditional red. Light tannins and orange peel acidity keep this lively and focused. Spicy and floral notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 50,000 cases made.
