La Rioja Alta is one of the "centenario" (over 100 years in production) firms of this region, and anytime they issue a Reserva or Gran Reserva, it's indeed a special occasion. The 2012 Ardanza is loaded with aromas and flavors of woods, spice and roasted plum, with a balance and texture that's simultaneously ethereal and gripping. We suspect it has decades of development ahead, but it's going to be hard to resist it over the next 5-7 years.
