The Winery

La Rioja Alta

La Rioja Alta

On July 10, 1890, five Basque and Rioja-based vine growers created "Sociedad Vinicola De La Rioja Alta" in what is known as the Haro Station District. 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.

Your rating for La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 2011:Rate La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 2011:

4 /5

- Intense, deep cherry-red with a garnet-red rim. Intense and complex aromas, dominated by fruit (blackberry jam, raspberries and orange zest) that reveals underlying spicy and balsamic notes of cigar box, cedar liquorice, cloves, chocolate mints and toasted wood.
- Elegantly refined entry. Fresh and lively in the mouth, nicely balanced with polished, silky tannins and a gentle, delicate finish.
- Very long aftertaste, with citrus and balsamic notes that provide long, complex final sensations.

5/5

Aromas of prunes, bay leaf and vanilla. The palate is silky, balanced and long. One of the biggest in its category, larguísima parenting that only some can withstand reaching the highest level at 10 years of their harvest. 94 points
