Review: *** $$ Anares Reserva, Rioja, Spain, 2008

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Anares Reserva.

Original tasting and review : This is Anares Reserva, Rioja, Spain, 2008, finished at 14% alcohol and first sampled eight years from vintage date, in September, 2014.

In the glass: Deep magenta, opaque from about three-quarters of an inch in from the edge of the glass.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bold red fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be light and aromatic.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact soft and clean red fruit, with a clean sheen.  Brightness unfolds on the finish.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
