Artadi Grandes Anadas Rioja 2000
9.25 stars
21 July 2020

A whiff and you can tell that this was American Oak dominated content, a sip and it confirmed the amount of American oak involved. It would have been the oak that you’ll try to identify whether this was new world or old world. I personally think that new world wines tend to infuse overloaded amount of oak, i.e. soaking the wines excessively in the oak barrel. This Artadi initial whiff was full of oak, but it slowly blew off in the decanter, replaced with very compact and powerful fruits, that was very enjoyable. Thus this was very old world winemaking in place.
