La Nieta Rioja 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

It has splendid aromas and layered sweet intense fruit and flavors with greater depth and breadth on the palate. It is a firmer effort which will surely evolve with several additional years of bottle age and drink well throught 2025.

Inky ruby. Earthy cherry and dark berry scents are accompanied by brooding notes of printer's ink, graphite and licorice root. Starts off solid and a bit clenched but aeration brings out sweeter kirsch and floral pastille flavors. The finish shows bitter cherry, chocolate and espresso. Give this some cellar time. - Stephen Tanzer 90 PointsThe 2004 El Puntido was sourced from its namesake vineyard planted in 1975. The wine was aged in new French oak for 18 months. Purple-colored, it offers an expressive nose of pain grille, pencil lead, scorched earth, black cherry, and blackberry. Firm and structured on the palate, this nicely balanced wine has ample spicy fruit but a slightly compressed finish. It has enough structure to evolve for 3-5 years and should drink well through 2020. - Robert Parker 90 PointsBlack cherry, plum, coffee and smoke flavors mingle in this sleek, muscular red. The tannins are prominent now, but lively acidity provides balance and the finish is spicy and long. Best from 2008 through 2016. 300 cases imported.
