From Rioja, Spain
|Description:||The current release is the 1997 Gran Reserva 904, still densely colored and alluringly perfumed. Aromas of dried herbs, tobacco, incense, and assorted black fruits lead to a savory, spicy wine without the depth of the splendid 2001. La Rioja Alta was founded in 1890 in Haro, the capital of Rioja Alta, in close proximity to Lopez de Heredia and Marques de Riscal. The Bodegas wines are all blends, there are no single vineyard wines, and all of the wines are produced from estate-grown grapes. During my visit in May, 2010, I had the opportunity to taste verticals of 2 of La Rioja Altas wines, Vina Ardanza Reserva and Gran Reserva 904. Vina Ardanzas wines are labeled Reserva with three exceptions. In what La Rioja Alta considers the greatest years (there have been three to date, 2001, 1973, and 1964)|
