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 [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]

Bright ruby. Sexy, expressive aromas of dark berries and cherry-vanilla, with cracked pepper and pipe tobacco nuances adding complexity. Plush and supple in texture, with sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors lifted by gentle acidity. Soft tanni... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

This terrific wineryrsquo;s 2003 Vinas de Gain is a 100% old vine Tempranillo from their high altitude vineyard sites in Rioja Alavesa. A superb entry level effort, it reminded me of the famed Pomerol, lrsquo;Evangile. Wonderful scents of black raspberries, sweet cherries, smoke, truffles, and earth soar from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-hued 2003. Ripe and elegant, with beautiful purity, superb intensity, and a long, smooth finsh, it is a glorious Rioja to enjoy over the next 5ndash;7 years.

Thick and rich. Resembles a ripe California red more than a traditional Rioja in color, body and tannin. Smoky, gamy flavors are a bit clumsy, but a plummy core keeps it in balance. Try in 2000.
