Contino Reserva 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

2004 is now seen, qualitatively, in the same light as the astonishing 2001<br/>vintage. A tardy growing season produced grapes with very ripe tannins and<br/>impressive levels of sugar. The resulting wines are full-bodied, yet<br/>wonderfully rounded. The blend is 80% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha and 15%<br/>Graciano, fermented in stainless steel and matured in a combination of French<br/>and American oak. The wine displays notes of strawberry fruit, with a balsamic<br/>backdrop, then soft and supple tannins; all in all this is a classic Contino;<br/>at the same time gloriously uncomplicated and yet wonderfully complex! <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
