Cune Imperial Gran Reserva Cvne 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2004 Imperial Gran Reserva is 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, and 5% Mazuelo aged in new French and American oak for 24 months. Deep crimson-colored, it gives up aromas of toast, spice box, espresso, blackberry, and plum. Medium to full-bodied, on the palate it displays a plush texture, ripe flavors, excellent volume and concentration, and a relatively forward personality...92+" WA 07/10 "Firm and a bit austere, this red shows depth and drive, with chewy tannins supporting plum, tobacco, licorice and mineral flavors. The structure is solid but the wine remains fresh. Maturing now, this has a long life ahead...95" WS 09/13 "After initial aromas of char, gritty leather, asphalt and tar fade, you get mature, herbal cherry and plum scents.
