"The 2005 Vina Arana Reserva has a fresh bouquet of orange blossom, quince, violets and dark cherries. The palate is succulent on the entry with vivacious maraschino cherry, red currant and blood orange. It displays a very fine build and a silky smooth texture that segues to a poised, mint-tinged, bright and animated finish. Drink now-2020."
93 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The winery was created in 1890 and was first know as "Sociedad Vinicola De La Rioja Alta". This was the beginning of a fascinating business venture in which the only dream of the five founders was to craft and age high quality wines.
The company changed its name to "La Rioja Alta" in 1891 and expanded its vineyards little by little.
