The La Rioja Alta Viña Ardanza Reserva 2008 is an expressive red wine that’s full of fresh and enticing flavors. A lovely dark cherry-red color in the glass, the nose has aromas of fresh cherries and blackcurrants, with accents of black pepper, tobacco, nutmeg, coffee, and caramel. On tasting, the wine is nicely balanced. It shows surprising freshness, while maintaining a good structure and elegant tannins. The finish is silky, with flavors of blackcurrant liqueur, toast, and sweet spice.
Enjoy this red wine with grilled meats, barbecue, and Iberian ham and sausages.
