2004 La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 Rioja


Rioja, Spain

Cherry-red with a ruby rim; clean, bright and lively. Highly complex nose with a creamy bouquet and spicy notes of cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, snuff box, and a background of undergrowth that lead to stewed red fruit and cherry liqueur. Good texture, balanced and fresh on the palate with elegant, tamed tannins. Outstandingly long, persistent and refined finish with notes of sweet tobacco, cedar and spice, cherry liqueur, and a coffee caramel aftertaste. A classic Rioja which stands out for its freshness and great bottle ageing potential.
