|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
This Spanish red wine of mostly Tempranillo earned 92 points from Robert Parker. I agree! This is a rich, medium+ bodied red wine with earthiness, baked cherry tarts, vanilla and violets. The aromas are duplicated on the palate with baked cherry becoming more like tart cherry, some smoke and toast, and baker's chocolate. A long tart cherry finish to sum it up. This wine is nine years old but still tasting youthful. Excellent BBQ wine for that last hurrah of summer. Still time left in the bottle. Buy 2.

(Surprisingly, my first bottle showed cork taint). There are some lovely cherry, cola, violet and vanilla notes on this wine. It is fresh (despite its age), and very aromatic. You would expect more density here but it is very much situated on a light, airy frame. There is a touch of milk chocolate on the finish. 91 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)

Cedar or sandalwood weaving through the nose and again on the swallow. Tart cherries. Sophisticated, restrained. A bit of leather. In its perfect drinking window. What's not to love?

Ardal reserva 2006 is a nice blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from Ribera del Duero. On the nose there is presence of dark cherries, leather and chocolate. On the palate the cherries become more tart and a bit of spice on the finish. Medium body with great tannins balancing the wine. Enjoy this wine with some great grilled meats.
|From the Ribera del Duero wine region, Ardal Reserva 2006 is a full-bodied and mature 80% Tempranillo and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon red wine blend. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews|
