2004 Imperial Gran Reserva, CVNE, Rioja
Firmly structured, this is potent and taut. The wine displays a fine-graded appearance - always an indicator of high quality - and the nose is greeted with a discreet rush of oak and exotic spice. On the palate, the wine is svelte and sleek, fruit-laden and meaty and has a long finish. With 13.5% alcohol, its strength remains cloaked, a truly aristocratic wine.
