Tasting notes Viña Arana

A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Viña Arana 2009 is a medium-bodied, complex red wine. Its 36 months of ageing give it finesse and an equal amount of complexity. A very typical balance of the classic Rioja wines with a long ageing.
Sight Cherry red. Clean and bright.
Nose On the nose it has great aromatic power with notes of candied fruit (strawberries and blueberries) and touches of wood, balsamic, vanilla and cocoa.
Taste On the palate it is balanced, medium bodied with an elegant acidity and soft tannins.
Sight A dark cherry red colour with pale maroon tones, medium-robe. Nose Good aromatic intensity and fresh nasal aromas, with notes of spicy wood, tobacco, cocoa and caramel harmoniously mixed with notes of perfectly ripe red fruit. Taste A medium-bodied and balanced red wine with silky tannins and a finaland pleasant final acidity which lengthens the wine in the mouth. Long and persistent finish. Complex and elegant.
Sight Intense cherry colour with thin violet borders. Clean and bright. Slow tears. Nose Intense ripe red fruit on an elegant background of vanilla and coconut provided by the good wood. Taste It is powerful and silky in the palate with a very tasty but soft mid palate. High presence of fruit which makes it very pleasant. The good notes of toasted do not undermine the notes of fruit. Well-integrated and ripe tannins. Well-bodied wine with a long and very persistent finish and a balsamic and spicy aftertaste. A classic wine from Rioja with a great elegance. A rounded wine.
Sight Pillory red, medium coat, clean and bright, with orange hues on the rim of the cup. Nose Presents a remarkable intensity in the nose of spicy red fruits and ripe citrus fruit, integrated into a fund and minty cinnamon, vanilla, caramel and caramels. Taste Mouth is medium body, very round, with sweet tannins that blend with a slight acidity typical of this brand. Long aftertaste, with aromas and flavors of citrus and balsamic that will be an excellent bouquet with time in bottle.
