LAST CALL for one of the best value-premium gems of Rioja Royalty. La Rioja Alta founded in the late 1800's, represents one of Spain's most prized multi-family estates. '12 Ardanza (80% Tempranillo/20% Garnacha) is a show stopper Reserva that drinks Gran Reserva, and will be the star on your holiday table. "Traditional and beautiful in character with plum, balsamic, orange-peel and leather aromas and flavors. It's medium-to full-bodied with creamy texture and a long, intense aftertaste. Drink or hold." 95 JS, "The palate is velvety but rich, with resolved tannins and a fine chalky mouthfeel, sleek and elegant, terribly balanced. The flavors are pure and defined, and there is an overall sense of harmony ... Brilliant Ardanza!" 94 WA
