2004 La Rioja Alta Ardanza Reserva
This wine was named #22 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2013.
"Cedar, tobacco and spice hints frame dried cherry, berry and vanilla notes in this silky red. The flavors mingle nicely, framed by juicy acidity and light but firm tannins. The wine has a lovely, weightless intensity. A fine example of the traditional style."
2004 R Lopez de Heredia Gravonia Crianza White
2004 Bodegas Ontanon Reserva
2004 Muga Prado Enea Gran Reserva
2004 Cune Imperial Gran Reserva
"Firm and a bit austere, this red shows depth and drive, with chewy tannins supporting plum, tobacco, licorice and mineral flavors. The structure is solid but the wine remains fresh. Maturing now, this has a long life ahead."
