Artadi Rioja Vinas de Gain 2011
Artadi 2002 Strong anise vanilla, deep black cherry, light wood, all on the nose after a ½ hour of air in a decanter. Big wine rich with vanilla, cream, deep rich cherry black cherry, gorgeous lushness. Wow, a lot of depth and more. Opened over an hour and it's still deep and strong. Little bit of an herbal quality with rich fruit and a strong mineral quality that prevades it all. Wow! I must buy more. Fresh ground pepper mixed with the strong cherry quality. Also on the finish a strong plum note makes itself known. c5a12t17o8=92 
An elegant fully mature wine with great nuance. Interestingly while enjoyable out of the bottle, it really opened up an hour into being opened though I would still say this wine is ready now for consumption. 4/5 [NR]

A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2008 Artadi Rioja Vinas de Gain 750ml
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.
Ruby-red. Bright, perfumed nose offers sexy raspberry, strawberry and cherry liqueur aromas accented by subtle notes of fresh rose and exotic spices. Lively and brisk, with tangy acidity providing focus and cut to the pure fruit flavors. Really delicious wine, with expansive, sweet raspberry and cherry flavors on the zesty, long finish. This can be enjoyed already, but Irsquo;d hold it for at least three years.
Bright ruby-red. Complex, musky aromas of creme de mure, currant, licorice and pepper. Sweet, supple and densely packed, with fruit-driven flavors of black raspberry and licorice. Finishes with substantial but thoroughly ripe tannins. A very strong vintage for Artadirsquo;s entry-level Rioja.

Artadirsquo;s 2007 Vinas de Gain is 100% Tempranillo sourced from 40- to 60-year-old vines and aged in 40% new French oak for 12ndash;14 months. A saturated purple color, it delivers an expressive bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry. Layered and full-flavored on the palate, it is nicely balanced with the structure to evolve for 4ndash;6 years. Drink it from 2014 to 2027. It is one of the better values in quality Rioja.
