Artadi Rioja Viñas de Gain 2003

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Thick and rich. Resembles a ripe California red more than a traditional Rioja in color, body and tannin. Smoky, gamy flavors are a bit clumsy, but a plummy core keeps it in balance. Try in 2000.

Bright, fresh ruby-red. Very primary aromas of crushed berries and rose petal. Lively and fruit-driven, with flavors of crushed red currant and spices. Offers a supple texture and enticing sweetness. Finishes with firm edged, mounting tannins and a suggestion of baking spices.

...Complex, musky aromas of creme de mure, currant, licorice and pepper. Sweet, supple and densely packed, with fruit-driven flavors of black raspberry and licorice. Finishes with substantial but thoroughly ripe tannins. A very strong vintage for Art... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2003 Artadi Vinas de Gain 750ml

100% old-vines garnacha planted on chalk at 800 meters. Deep ruby-red. Superripe but bright and pure aromas of black cherry, minerals and pepper. Sweet, thick and dense but also sappy and spicy, with sound acidity for the year. Creamy, alluring grenache, at once lush and solidly structured. Finishes with broad, fine tannins that reach the front teeth and suggestions of sexy French oak (40% new). This would outclass a lot of 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape bottlings.

The profound 2003 Santa Cruz (also 100% Grenache) is fashioned from an 80–100-year old vineyard planted in pure chalk at a lofty elevation of 715 meters (the northernmost and coolest sub-zone in Navarra). A gloriously pure bouquet of kirsch liqueur, raspberries, licorice, and pepper jumps from the glass of this amazingly full-bodied, rich, ripe 2003. With soft tannin, decent acidity, and a wonderful crispness despite its weighty concentration and headiness, this stunning Spanish Grenache should be enjoyed over the next 3–5 years.
