Viña Arana 2014: " Old fashioned Rioja at its glorious best" -Tim Atkins, MW " “This Vina Arana Gran Reserva 2014 from La Rioja Alta is dynamite […] Hard to think of a wine that offers so much complexity for...the money" -Henry Jeffreys (Wine writer for BBC Good Food and The Spectator)
Viña Ardanza 2015: "An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black raspberry, cherry cola, potpourri, tobacco and exotic spices, plus a smoky mineral flourish. Sweet and broad in the mouth, offering lush red and blue fruit, spicecake, mocha and coconut flavors that firm up on the back half. Finishes extremely long and spicy, with resonating florality, gently chewy tannins and lingering oak spice notes." -Josh Reynolds, Vinous
La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904: "This is a classic marriage (for 904) of Tempranillo and 11% Graciano that will appeal to the wine's many dedicated fans. Sweet balsamic and coconut aromas segue into a palate that's gentle, savoury and caressing with vital underlying acidity and structure." -95 points and one of the ‘Wines of the Year’, Tim Atkin MW
