Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage) Packed with red berry flavours with underlying hints of coffee, coconut and vanilla with notes of balsam.

Winemaker's Notes

A brilliant, clean cherry red colour, more opaque than recent vintages. The initial aroma of ripe fruit develops, on contact with the air, and becomes more complex showing the personality of the grapes in the blend with spicy hints from the oak ageing. The flavour is warm, round and again complex with touches of liquorice. It is typically Viña Arana but an Arana of an exceptional vintage. We see this wine continuing to mature wonderfully for many years to come.
