The 2004 Remirez de Ganuza is dark ruby-colored with a splendidly expressive perfume of pain grille, crushed stone, scorched earth, and assorted black fruits. Youthful and tightly wound on the palate, the wine has all the components for potential greatness. Dense, lengthy, and complex, with 6-8 years of cellaring this wine will be smoking.Inky violet. Smoky black raspberry, cassis and kirsch aromas exhibit remarkable power, with an exotic coconut quality adding complexity. Deep, sweet and velvety, offering remarkably deep, weighty dark fruit flavors and a sweet mocha character. Mouthfilling, densely packed and exotic, displaying an explosive array of mocha-accented berry liqueur flavors on the long, spicy finish. This is already a show-stopper.

The 1996 could be called the Château Latour of Rioja. An opaque black/plum color is followed by aromas of minerals, cigar tobacco, cedar, lead pencil, and sweet black currant, plum, and cherry fruit. One of the greatest young Riojas I have ever tasted, it exhibits full body, a huge, concentrated palate feel, an immense, chewy texture, and high tannin in the finish. The proprietor, who started this bodega in 1989, was not satisfied with anything until 1994, when the first wine was released. This looks to be a prodigious Rioja that should age effortlessly for three decades. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030.
