2004 La Rioja Alta Viña Arana Rioja Reserva

2004 La Rioja Alta Viña Arana Rioja ReservaS. Irene Virbila chose this as her “wine of the week” in the LA Times, writing that “La Rioja Alta is one of the great old Rioja houses, best known for Viña Ardanza, long one of my favourite Riojas. The 2004 Viña Arana is winning me over, though.”

She added: “Give this terrific Rioja some time in the glass for all its layers to show themselves. Drink it with a chorizo-laden paella, with grilled meats, roast lamb or pork. If you can commandeer a suckling pig, this is the bottle for it. The 2005 vintage, which is just appearing on the shelves now, is an excellent vintage too.”
