Benjamin Romeo Tempranillo Blend Rioja Contador 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The sensational 2009 Contador is a blend of 97% Tempranillo and 3% Garnacha from several parcels, cropped at 0.5kg per bush vine and aged for 18 months entirely in French oak. The nose is very lifted with floral notes: crushed violets and rose petals sprinkled over cassis and dark plum fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and a gentle, insistent grip. It has a satin-like texture, bewitching harmony and a precise, languorous finish that exhibits spine-tingling minerality. Returning to the bottle hours after opening, it evolves ever-higher degrees of harmony and sumptuousness. It almost leaves you giggling stupidly at how good it is. It is expensive, but it is also cheaper than a First Growth...95" WA 8/12

The 2004 Contador is even better than the 2003 if that is possible. More expressive aromatically (a characteristic of 2004) this wine is more tightly wound and backward than the 2003. Unlike the 2003 ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2004 Benjamin Romeo Contador 750ml

This bold, tightly wound red shows keen acidity, with expressive plum, cranberry and orange peel flavors framed by vanilla and toasty oak notes. Sharp now, but food should moderate the acidity, and time should bring it into harmony. Drink now through... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rioja in Spain. 2003 Benjamin Romeo La Vina de Andres Romeo 750ml
