2004 Gran Reserva 904, La Rioja Alta, Rioja

2004 Gran Reserva 904, La Rioja Alta, Rioja

The brilliant 904 Gran Reserva is only produced in exceptional years, with the 2004 eclipsed only by the 1964 at this stage. Fifty years on the ’64 is no less than a masterpiece – still singing through its retirement and a fine example of exactly what the 2004 is capable of. That said, try resisting the urge to drink this over the next few years, it is truly alluring. Neal Martin cites the wines of Rioja Alta as‘the finest Riojas that can grace your cellar’. The 2004 illustrates why.

"This 2004, from a superb vintage shows a beautiful light red color with a brick rim and a superb nose redolent of balsamic woods, spices, leather, well-hung meat, incense and truffles. The light to medium-bodied palate shows fully resolved tannins, great acidity and pure, pungent flavors that linger in the mouth forever and that can only be Rioja. This is a wine to smell over and over again...at this quality level the price is superb especially considering that the wine is being released 10 years after the vintage."
