- Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Luis Gutierrez: „The aim with the 2014 Viña Arana Gran Reserva is to find a new Gran Reserva style that combines freshness and joy with intensity, sophistication and aging potential through a blend of Tempranillo with 6% Graciano that matured in American oak barrels for three years with rackings every six months. 2014 was a weaker year in the region, and the wine shows it and feels less vivacious than the 2015 Viña Alberdi. It has medium ripeness and abundant spicy and smoky notes and a medium-bodied palate with a soft texture that points at a wine for shorter-term consumption than the rest of the portfolio or other vintages from this cuvée. 80,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2018.“


- VINOUS, Josh Raynolds: „Limpid ruby-red. Oak-spiced cherry, black raspberry, candied rose, spicecake and coconut aromas show very good definition and pick up tobacco and licorice notes as the wine opens up. Smooth and appealingly sweet, offering sappy cherry cola, fruitcake, coconut and floral pastille flavors complemented by an earthy undertone. Shows very good energy and floral lift on a long, smoky finish framed by velvety, well-knit tannins.“


- 96 Punkte DECANTER, Sarah Jane Evans: „Arana commemorates one of La Rioja Alta's historic families. The Tempranillo (95%) and Graciano (5%) are aged separately in American oak barrels for three years before blending, then for three years in bottle (two years less than the 904, and six years less than the 890). The winery's keynote to this Rioja is 'freshness'. I agree. Drinking Window 2020 – 2030“


- 96 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: „Lots of mushroom and walnut aromas with plum and leather, too. It’s full-bodied, but very soft and creamy-textured with lots of old wood, mushroom and ripe fruit on the finish. Some chocolate and hazelnut. Complex and gorgeous. Drink or hold.“


Bewertung für Jahrgang 2015:
94 Punkte, TIM ATKIN, Rioja 2022 Special Report: "Graciano helps our Gran Reservas to age," says Julio Sáenz of this blend with 94% Tempranillo. Still youthful, this is a classic expression of the perfumed, American oak-influenced La Rioja Alta style, with notes of coconut and sweet baking spices, fine tannins and refreshing underlying acidity. 2023-30

Notizen des Weinguts: Harvest: It began with very favourable weather, with magnificent canopy development and great condition until veraison, pointing to a top-quality vintage. Adverse weather prior to harvest forced us to carry out intensive vineyard tasks to make sure that the grapes would ripen properly. Strict selection accompanied by manual harvesting ensured we had clusters in top condition to make our wines, with a good balance between alcohol content and polyphenols, allowing us to produce top quality wines with good structure, determining factors in our decision to produce the second vintage of this Gran Reserva. Vineyard, Grapes & Ageing: Tempranillo (94%) from Las Cuevas, El Palo and Las Monjas vineyards in Rodezno complemented with 6% Graciano from the Montecillo estate in Fuenmayor. We started the grape harvest with the Tempranillo and, 20 days later, we picked the Graciano in Montecillo. All the grapes were placed in small boxes and taken to the winery in refrigerated transport to preserve their integrity. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, lasting 19 days. After malolactic fermentation, in April 2015, we selected a number of wines that were transferred to American oak barrels (made in-house) with an average age of 4.5 years. They remained in barrels for three years, with a traditional racking every six months. In April 2018, we made the last blend, which we bottled in June 2018. Pairing: Particularly recommended with all kinds of meats, stews, seasoned fish, and desserts with chocolate couverture or red berries. Perfect as an after-dinner drink. Tasting Notes: Lively, clean, medium depth, garnet–red with an incipient pink rim. Intense aromas with outstanding notes of redcurrants, raspberries, wild blackberries and ripe red plums creating a complex bouquet together with the balsamic notes from the barrel: vanilla, cloves, coffee, caramel and brioche. Very tasty in the mouth, evincing the brand’s distinctive classic texture. Fresh, vibrant and well-balanced, with amiable sweet tannins. Its long stay in the bottle rewards us with that great complexity and elegance typical of this style of Rioja wines. To enjoy now, but with a long life ahead.
