Reviews & Scores

The 2011 Crianza from Áster has a clean nose of ripe black fruit without excess, quite restrained for such a warm vintage. It has some lactic notes, nicely integrated oak, and a pinch of spices and smoke, classic Ribera. The palate is lush and round, with fine tannins and very good balance. A triumph over the conditions of the year. 150,000 bottles produced.

Aster belongs to La Rioja Alta. I've seen a remarkable increase in the quality of the wines here in the last two or three years. Less oak and better balance. Well done!

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant reserva with an enveloping bouquet of crushed red cherries and subtle spices with just a hint of lavender. On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...

TASTING NOTES

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.
