Finca Coronado Rioja 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"New property from Miguel Angel de Gregorio of Finca Allende in Rioja. Very voluptuous and sweet! Blend of Cabernet, Syrah, Tempranillo, Merlot and Petit Verdot in French oak - but it smells thoroughly Spanish. Full and round and very, very ripe. Feels much more than the cited 14%. Bit of a bruiser. Can't quite think what to eat with this, but it should win favour with those who want an impressive, head-butting wine by the glass. Certainly well made. (JR)" (12/06) - 16.5 out of 20 Points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages. This was also rated 87 Points by the International Wine Cellar.

Nestled between the majestic Mt. Graham and the unique Dos Cabezas mountains, in the Coronado National Forest, a unique wine tasting experience awaits you. Managing owners, Mark and Jacque Cook, and their partners dreamed of owning a beautiful winery with outstanding wines for many years. On November 18th, 2006 that dream became a reality with the Grand Opening of Coronado Vineyards. Coronado Vineyards presented nine unique wines, from a sweet white table wine to a dry red wine all from wine grapes grown here in sunny Arizona. Coronado Vineyards produces some of Arizona’s finest wines. With elevations reaching over 4,000 ft, Arizona’s high desert is the perfect location for producing grapes of distinct quality and character. Warm summer days, cool nights, and mineral rich soils contribute to the intensity and wide range of flavors in these fine wines. Read less

Fans of Miguel Angel de Gregorios Finca Allende wines from Rioja will want to snap up this excellent, lush-styled blend of Graciano, Merlot and Petit Verdot from La Mancha. This wine almost proves that talent is as important as terroir, because no other La Mancha wine features this grape blend, these rich and pure medicinal flavors, and a smooth-handed sense of balance that calls for drinking now through 2013. M.S. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 93 Points A top-notch offering from this nearly forgotten, vast viticultural region, this 1,000-case cuvee is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, and Syrah along with small quantities of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Graciano. Its inky/ruby/purple color is accompanied by smoky, creme de cassis-like aromas presented in a full-bodied, fleshy, modern, international style. Consume this reasonably priced Spanish red over the next 5-6 years. - Robert Parker 90 Points
