As always, Viña Arana delivers. Sitting alongside 890 & 904, this wine offers earlier drinking than its bigger siblings. Grippy tannins with a brilliant array of ripe red fruits and black cherry, there’s a sweet coconutty vanilla nose, with cinnamon and toasted coffee-bean notes. This wine is drinking beautifully now, though it has the quality to develop much further in the bottle for those of you who like the more earthy, meaty, mushroom undernotes that come with maturity.
