Artadi Rioja Viñas de Gain 2001
External Reviews for Artadi Rioja Viñas de Gain
Bright, fresh ruby-red. Very primary aromas of crushed berries and rose petal. Lively and fruit-driven, with flavors of crushed red currant and spices. Offers a supple texture and enticing sweetness. Finishes with firm edged, mounting tannins and a suggestion of baking spices.
The 2001 Vinas de Gain (100% Tempranillo) is a fabulous effort for the price (one of the best buys in the marketplace). Aged in French oak casks (about 40% new) for 12ndash;14 months, it boasts a deep purple color to the rim as well as a perfume of raspberries, blackberries, crushed stones, and white flowers. With extraordinary precision, definition, and finesse, great elegance, wonderful sweetness, medium body, and a gorgeously textured finish, it caresses the palate, offering considerable personality and overall symmetry. It will drink beautifully for 7ndash;8 years. A brilliant effort, itrsquo;s a steal at $20.
