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

  • La Rioja Alta Tempranillo Rioja Gran Reserva 904 1997

    Snoothrank:

    Bricking brownish red in color. Dried fruit, sour cherry on the nose. Sour pomegranate on the palate with lively acidity supporting a sweet sour core of fruit. Some crushed rock on the back end just before a nice medium plus finish. Slinky light mouth-feel with some impressions of soil also in the mix. 92 points. Read More
