Quite simply, the Gran Reserva 904 is one of the finest Riojas that can grace your cellar – complex, refined, classic but without compromising fruit intensity. Matured in fourth-used American oak barrels for four years. It has the combination of elegance and power only the best vintages are capable of, with classical aromas, exceptional detail and nuance, and outstanding balance and persistence.
Deep cherry-red with a garnet rim. Very intense and complex aromas, delivering notes of plum and ripe grapes, blackberry jam and raspberry that give way to spicy and balsamic notes of tobacco leaves, cedar, liquorice, vanilla, chocolate and ground coffee. Fresh and balanced in the mouth, with polished, silky tannins and a gentle, delicate finish. Very long aftertaste, with pleasing balsamic notes of coffee and toasted caramel, candied fruits and liquorice dominating. 2010 is among the best vintages over the last few decades. A legend in the making.
Food matches: Wonderful with roast pork and lamb and with aged cheeses.
