La Rioja Alta - Vina Arana Reserva 2009Silky Tannins
The Vina Arana 2009 is a wine with that smooth, polished red colour typical of classic Riojas. Clean and bright in the glass, with light orange notes on the rim. Outstandingly intense nose, with light balsamic tertiary aromas of tobacco, caramel, incense and spices against a background of ripe fruit. Consistent and well-balanced in the mouth, with fine, elegant tannins. Very enjoyable, ample, elegant finish; mature and pleasant.
Food pairing: First courses of rice or pasta dishes. Small game casseroles, char-grilled meat, etc.
