93 Points - Wine Advocate

On July 10, 1890, five Basque and Rioja-based vintners created "Sociedad Vinicola De La Rioja Alta" in what is known as the Haro Station District. Over time La Rioja Alta earned the reputation of being one of the best producers of the Rioja region, due to their incredible dedication to both tradition and quality. Their 300 hectares of vineyards are spread throughout the region and mostly consist of Tempranillo, but also include Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano. After the harvest, the grapes are vinified in the company's new, modern winemaking facility and then aged for varying periods of time in American oak casks. The wine is not filtered prior to bottling and spends further long aging in the bottle before it is released.

Vina Ardanza Reserva is a smooth, medium bodied blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha, and has been aged in American oak casks for thirty six months. A complex nose of wild berry, lavender, coconut and incense merges with bold notes of dark fruit, cinnamon, tobacco and leather on the palate. Although this wine can definitely be enjoyed now, it will continue to evolve for another five to ten years and offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036.
