La Rioja Alta Tempranillo Rioja Gran Reserva 904 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 1998 Gran Reserva 904 is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano aged in American cask for four years. It has a very fine nose with notes of dried honey, cloves, raisin and wild heather that blossom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of orange peel on the entry. It has an effortless sense of harmony and poise, with a crisp tense finish and suffused with a sorbet-like freshness. It just dances across the palate, a memorable Rioja with style and panache...95" WA 8/12

Sour cherry and super gentle forest floor tones are meet by incipient mushroom notes on the nose all wrapped up in nicely burnished cranberry and raspberry fruit. This is super supple in the mouth with a gorgeous mouthfeel, elegant, refined, and oh so balanced. There’s tons of black cherry fruit here along with black tea, and soft carob notes that lead to a long finish full of red cherry and spiced cherry fruit followed by hints of oak, leather, dried spice mushroom and raspberry on the finale. 93pts

Schönes Rubinrot, das auf die lange und sorgfältige Reifung im Barrique hinweist. Dichter Schmelz. Ein runder und vollkommener Wein. Im Mund hat er eine samtige Textur, hervorgerufen durch seinen hohen Extrakt.

Dunkles, intensives Kirschrot. Vielfältige, kräftige Aromen. Er ist körperreich und hat einen würzigen Geschmack.

Beautiful cigar box orange peel clove and rose aromas draw you into this mature supple red which shows pronounced acidity and dried citrus tobacco and spice flavors. A bit lean a reflection of the vintage but a lovely example of the traditional style. Drink now. TM Wine Spectator.
