  • La Rioja Alta Rioja Gran Reserva 890 2004

    Snoothrank:

    A bit tight on the nose with subtle notions of spicy wild berry fruits and dusty, dry leather. A little lactic, this shows some raw wood qualities on the nose, as well. The wine is almost velvety on entry and is totally integrated if a bit tight, with some early blueberry fruit and layered wood spice accents. There has lovely purity to the fruit... Read More

  • La Rioja Alta Tempranillo Blend Rioja Viña Ardanza Reserva Especial 2001

    Blue and black fruit notes on the nose along with a complex aromas of cinnamon, balsamic reduction, black cherry and lavender. Medium bodied, showing some nice age with flavors of earthy, dusty blue and black fruit with some suggestions of red berries as well. Light hints of truffle, coffee and a savory quality. Really drinking nicely!92 pts.... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Disappointing. Closed nose, woody when it began to open. On the palate, the fruit was severly masked by the oak and herb flavors. Read More

  • La Rioja Alta Tempranillo Blend Rioja Viña Ardanza Reserva Especial 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Light and elegant on the nose. Vanilla oak topped layers of leather, medicinal, minty, chalky and teriyaki dried beef elements accent a bright core of wild cherry. Smooth and rich in the mouth, this is powerful yet not that large. The berry fruit, both fresh and dried, is accented by earth and spice notes. A fine bitter cherry element drives the... Read More
