    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brick red with iodine hints, medium robe. Intense aroma of spices, noble wood, mentholated chocolate on a background of plums, raisins and sugared fruit. Very long and complex to the nose. Well-balanced to the palate, with a good structure and highly polished, silky and elegant tannins. Complex after-taste with a gentle and long-lasting ending.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 1998 Gran Reserva 904 is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano aged in American cask for four years. It has a very fine nose with notes of dried honey, cloves, raisin and wild heather that blossom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of orange peel on the entry. It has an effortless sense of harmony and poise, with a crisp tense finish and suffused with a sorbet-like freshness. It just dances across the palate, a memorable Rioja with style and panache. Drink now-2030.

    The Wine Advocate

    Beautiful cigar box, orange peel, clove and rose aromas draw you into this mature, supple red, which shows pronounced acidity and dried citrus, tobacco and spice flavors. A bit lean, a reflection of the vintage, but a lovely example of the traditional style.
