    Winemaker's Notes:

    Attractive ruby red colour. Good intensity on the nose. Ripe, dark fruit aromas with a marked, elegant reminder of toasted oak. Supple and concentrated on the palate with well assembled tannins. Good balance and a long, very persistent finish.

    Thanks to its acidity and smooth mouth-feel this wine will go well with virtually any dish. It is a good red wine for oily fish, and of course with meat and game.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ysios is the wavy-roofed, Calatrava-designed winery that graces all those postcards from Rioja. But over the years this Pernod Ricard property has struggled with consistency. Nevertheless, the 2004 is probably the best wine to date from Ysios; it offers creamy but fresh berry aromas backed by cherry, raspberry and plum flavors. With mocha and chocolate on the finish, it has a bit of everything that we’re looking for. Just shy of the 90-point range, but like we said, it’s Ysios’ best wine so far.

    Smoke and tar notes frame plum, mineral and chocolate flavors in this generous red. Maturing now, but the firm tannins keep it focused. Drink now through 2011. 2,500 cases imported.

    Deep red. Ripe cherry and plum aromas are brightened by floral and smoky mineral qualities. Smooth, fleshy and open-knit, offering gently sweet cherry and dark berry flavors and solid grip. Slightly gritty tannins build with air and carry through the focused, juicy finish.
