La Rioja Alta 'Vina Arana' Tempranillo 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2005 Vina Arana Reserva has a fresh bouquet of orange blossom, quince, violets and dark cherries. The palate is succulent on the entry with vivacious maraschino cherry, red currant and blood orange. It displays a very fine build and a silky smooth texture that segues to a poised, mint-tinged, bright and animated finish...93" WA 8/12

Bright ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced red fruit and floral pastille aromas are complemented by deeper-pitched notes of espresso and licorice. Juicy, penetrating and spicy on the palate, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a building vanilla nuance. Supple tannins give shape to the finish, which features lively red fruit and spicecake flavors. This suave wine is delicious now but balanced to age.
