The Viña 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. Pairing: First courses of rice or pasta dishes. Small game casseroles, char-grilled meat, etc.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Viña Arana Reserva is mostly Tempranillo with some 5% Mazuelo (Cariñena), with a long aging in oak barrels (three years with six manual rackings). It's a polished and soft red, classic Rioja. Translucent and bright with some orange around the edges, it feels light and tertiary with balsamic aromas of cigar ash and incense, spicy and developed. The palate is consistent, medium-bodied, with fine tannins and fully developed. Ready to go. 150,000 bottles produced.
