Tasting Notes

The 1997 Gran Reserva 904, still densely colored and alluringly perfumed. Aromas of dried herbs, tobacco, incense, and assorted black fruits lead to a savory, spicy wine without the depth of the splendid 2001.

Score: 94

Bright red. Seductively perfumed nose offers a complex bouquet of dried cherry, vanilla, cola, potpourri, smoky minerals and cedar. Silky red berry and cherry flavors are sweetened by vanilla bean and take on tannic structure with air. Becomes deeper and riper on the impressively long, sweet, lightly chewy finish, which strongly echoes the cherry and vanilla qualities. I'd serve this with strongly seasoned grilled steak or lamb.

Score: 92
