Natalie's Score: 92/100

Love the mature tertiary aromas coming through on this Rioja red wine: truffles (the fungi kind, not chocolate), violets, old leather, cigar box and dried herbs with dusty earth. Not fruit-forward, but balanced and smooth and full-bodied. Some thyme and vanilla smoke on a long finish. Highly recommended.

Food pairings: veal.

The red wine blend is mostly Tempranillo grapes, with some Mazuelo and Graciano grapes. The wine was matured in French and American oak barrels for 2 years before bottling. The 2004 vintage was a such a strong one for this Gran Reserva. Finishes with attractive dried herbs. - Community Wine Reviews
