The 1995 Gran Reserva 904 exhibits an aged appearance belying its vibrant perfume of cedar pencil lead mineral leather black cherry and blackberry liqueur. The epitome of elegance and style on the palate the wine is silky and seems to dance across the palate. The tannins are unresolved but this wine has enough balance to drink well through 2015. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The current release of the estate?s Rioja Gran Reserve 904, the 1995, is reminiscent of a Spanish version of a top-notch Graves from Bordeaux. Earthy mineral aromas intermixed with smoky tobacco, scorched earth, red currants, sweet cherries, and spice box jump from the glass of this complex, nuanced red. The light to medium ruby/garnet color is followed by notes of old wood, sweet, fresh mushrooms, roses, currants, and cherry fruit. With good structure and tannin, this is a classic example of an old style Rioja. Drink it over the next decade.

Made from mostly Tempranillo, with a touch of Graciano and Mazuelo, this wine is aged in barrel for four years and in bottle for another four. A silky mouth feel, this wine is very delicate with a long finish. Black cherries, baking spices, and mocha notes pop from the glass.

ST: Ruby-red. Potent bouquet of almost exotic floral and dark fruit aromas, accented by sweet underbrush and sexy oak spices. Densely packed and concentrated, boasting an abundance of cherry and dark berry flavors joined by rose and violet pastille, vanilla, mocha and red licorice. Wonderfully silky tannins give a structural underpinning to the finish of this rich, densely packed beauty. This could be enjoyed now or stashed away for another decade.
