Tasting Notes

Vina Ardanza’s 2005 Reserva is a complex wine that is already showing so many of the wonderful qualities we have come to expect from this classic Rioja. Masses of dark fruit, with measures of dried berries and cherries wrapped up in a silky smooth coat of herbs, spice, smoke and leather. The palate lives up to the hype from the nose and its medium body is held together with fine ripe tannins This is a truly fantastic drinking experience that is excellent now and has plenty of stuffing to last 5-10 years, if you let it! Yet another superb vintage for this magnificent Rioja.

Reviews & Scores

This traditional red offers dried cherry, orange peel, tobacco and sanguine flavors in a silky texture, supported by light, firm tannins and balsamic acidity. Focused and fresh, with a juicy finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases made.
