Vinedos de Paganos Rioja El Puntido Tempranillo Wine 2004

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

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 Tanzers IWC.

The 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.

Black 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. -TM Wine Spectator.

The 2003 El Puntido is similarly styled but built more for the long haul than the 2002. 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 through 2025. Importer: Jorge Ordonez Fine Estates from Spain Dedham MA; tel.
