La Rioja Alta Reserva, "Arana" 2009

30.00

Cherry red, with definitive golden tints. A medium-bodied Tempranillo. The aroma is spicy, penetrating and complex and more apparent than in previous years. In the mouth it appears to be a mature wine, but still very lively and complete. Though it is currently drinking extremely well, it still has a great deal of life ahead of it. A very well balanced, complex and sophisticated wine.

One of the great old estates of Rioja, La Rioja Alta began in 1890 when five Riojan and Basque families merged their vineyard holdings and established a winery in Haro (relocated in 1996 to be closer to the vineyards in Labastista). a Rioja Alta continues to produce some of the most classic wines in the region, embracing its long history, commitment to tradition, and strictly estate-grown production. With more than 400 hectares under vine, the estate focuses on its old vines, manages the vineyards without the use of artificial fertilizers, produces barrels from its own cooperage, and assiduously maintains the integrity of its wines, only producing Reserva and Gran Reserva wines in worthy vintages.
