User Reviews for La Rioja Alta Vina Ardanza Rioja Riserva

Winemaker's Notes:

"This winery's top of the line offerings are the Gran Reservas. The 1981Gran Reserva 890 boasts a knock-out nose of smoke, charcoal, vanillin, blackfruits, and cigar smoke. There is tannin in the background, but the wine isbroad and expansive, with considerable fruit, and length. 1981 was consideredone of the great vintages for Rioja, and this wine is at its peak of maturity,although it will last for another 8+ years. This is an exceptional example ofan old school Spanish Rioja that was aged in different-sized oak vessels, andnot released until it had reached full maturity." 92/100 points RobertParker-Wine Advocate
