La Rioja Alta in Spain has a long history of producing great wines. Their best wine, pound for pound, is the Vina Ardanza Reserva.
In only the very finest years, they designate this wine as Vina Ardanza Reserva Especial. In the history of La Rioja Alta they have only chosen three vintages to be Reserva Especial-- 1964, 1973, and now, 2001. We just received our first allotment of the 2001 vintage and it’s spectacular.
Jay Miller of the Wine Advocate rated the 2001 Vina Ardanza Reserva Especial at 94 points, which was the highest rating given to any Spanish red $35 and under in Issue #189 of the Wine Advocate. A 94 pointer for $27.98 per bottle plus $1 per bottle shipping on six or more.
Jay Miller Wine Advocate 94 Points-- The current release is the 2001 Reserva Especial, a deeply colored wine with a lovely perfume of cinnamon, lavender, incense, balsamic, and black cherry. Medium-bodied, velvety-textured, and already complex, it will continue to evolve for another 5-10 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036. For those seeking immediate gratification, it has the virtue of being approachable now.
