Amazing mature Rioja from Vina Arana basesd in the La Rioja Alta subregion. It's at a high altitude allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and build up acidity. The wine is aged for 3 years in old American oak barrels and then bottled in 2013.
Scored at 96/100 from big time wine critique James Suckling.
Powerful and rich with black fruit and blueberry character. Full body, tannic and flavourful with a sweet tobacco finish from it's time spent in barrels. Great ageing potential.
