Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage) Medium-depth, dark-cherry red with incipient orange hues. High aromatic intensity, with notes of vanilla, caramel, toffee and cinnamon from the wood against a background of fruits in liqueur. Good structure in the mouth, with a pleasant acidity and fine tannins. A wine with an expansive aftertaste re-emphasising its seductive acidity and noble flavours derived from barrel ageing. - See more at: http://www.riojalta.com/wines/vina-arana#sthash.3OSXaKD7.dpuf
