  • La Rioja Alta Tempranillo Blend Rioja Viña Arana Reserva 2001

It's got everything: depth, distinct flavors, classy and dusty re... Read More

  • In 1976, Amerine and Roessler ( U.C. Davis professors) counseled tasters to avoid emotive and anthropomorphic terms such big, finesse, hard, intense, lingering, long, rich, silky and velvety.  They stated in their book "Wines, Their Sensory Evaluation" that these words should be avoided at all costs.  How does the forum feel of this?

  • La Rioja Alta Tempranillo Rioja Gran Reserva 904 1997


    Excellent value for the money (~30-35 eur). Ruby red with dark brick on the rim, medium body, elegant, velvet texture with strong earth and spicy notes, vanilla, dried berries and nuts. Already on its peak, or even a little passed... Read More
